Loch Nevis from the Armadale on Skye to mainland Mallaig
It was the only day in the week that the ferry called twice at Eigg, once to drop us & once to collect, of course.
The Sgurr on Eigg on arrival from Mallaig
We were starving after all that bouncing around & had the most amazing hamburgers & coffee & cake in the Eigg cafe.
Tilt left, sorry, I'll have to try & sort this out! By the cafe, a lovely rusty red ;)

& back to the shore by the ferry terminal
I've obviously got to keep our new point & shoot camera, a Lumix with a Leica lens no less, on the level when I take a pic. It doesn't seem to cope with turning sideways. Having said that it's a lovely little lightweight thing!
We went for a couple of other walks & got completely sodden near Portree but nevertheless went for coffee & cake in The Bakery under my favorite Skyeworks Gallery The photographic exhibition was fabulous (as was the cake!) My favorite pic was the one used in the promotion leaflet, you'll see when you click the link. A daisy in the garden of local photographer Donnie Mackay - must ask him how he got that moody effect ;)
Thursday we went to Plockton (in MY exhibition space ;)to see the work of my textile friend Polly Bryan - I'm so glad she did this!
oh. she's spinning!
The middle piece is Mulberry bark, torn, pulled & beautifully beaded
Lovely organic shape there
My favorite, hopefully she'll send me a pic of the one similar that was sold from above!
Lots of goodies
Pastels, a woman of many talents
another favotite landscape, tilt left
& last tilt left - colors you could eat!
A quick walk up to a viewpoint I've always been meaning to go to in Plockton
Across to Skye
over to Loch Carron towards Kishorn where they held the record for building the world's heaviest moveable object, an oil rig - probably still do ;)
We were taken for a wonderful meal by DH's uncle to the Plockton Shores great food & friendly service. A great week altogether!
Celebrating over 200 posts; some would call that a lot of rabbiting - nobody here of course & I was delighted when someone local described what he was hearing from me when chatting to a friend as a "stream of consciousness". Much kinder ;) So, I'd like to offer a little giveaway of some scrappy fabrics in juicy colors, a bit of tissue & music paper, a copy of one of my painted papers (left) a little foil, rusty ring, bullet & shell & a spare tube of clear silk gutta - I got it to use as a resist. Just leave me a comment telling me how you might use this collection! I'll let you know who's won as soon as!
