The cold and snowy weather is lovely but tonight I want a break and so here are some photos from summertimes past.
This first photo could be an advert for Caledonian MacBrayne and their Oban to Mull ferry which is named, unsurprisingly, “The Isle of Mull”. In the immediate background is the island of Kerrera which shelters Oban bay. Mull is in the distance.
The second below is of the same ferry taken a few seconds earlier as it entered Oban bay. The hills in the distant background are Morven and the low dark island (at same height as the ferry) is Lismore
This could almost be the Caribbean but – surprise, surprise it isn’t. Scotland again! The lovely island of Iona.
Sailing in the silvery Sound of Mull with Morven in the background.
Now I must return to the reality of winter: freezing outside; warm as a pie inside and that’s absolutely fine.
