Bleak weather. …

Due to the rather inclement weather. . I tried to find a bed for the night… the rain hammering down on a tin box is pure torture. .. so after the last post I tootled off to find comfortable surroundings. .  Ahh not to be I’m afraid. ..no room at the inn/b+b or campsite.. not that a campsite would be any different. .. apart from hot water.

Did manage to get a bottle of red to soften the discomfort mind you..
So here I am

This is sage.. on her holiday from Aldershot. . And also on a road trip
Sage is i quite famous dog and has her own following on Facebook.

And yes… a chocolate labrador. Well seen a few as I’ve travelled and it seemed rude not to speak to her. As sage and nan chatted. . Her owner and i did the same.. turns out we have a lot in common.
The day had turned into a peach of a day and where better to spend it..

Afternoon slipped into evening as we chatted. And blogging slipped slightly. .

On the way back down this fantastic island the cullins look fantastic. . Mind you..I wouldn’t like to be at the top.
