Lunch Time Treat

Friday we had our lunch break at the Port of Ness, taking our little picnic and our travel mugs of coffee with us.  It was nice to admire the views and stroll along the pier, taking in the beauty.  Thankful that we have each other to share this beautiful Island with.




 
The harbour was constructed  early in the 19th Century.
 

 
The boathouse features in the Peter May novels and tours are now been offered around the area.




The first time in awhile that I wasn't wearing a warm jumper, we reached the dizzy heights of 20 for a few hours.  The bonus was there wasn't a lot of wind either, making it feel quite warm. 




Sadly it didn't last and the winds picked up to almost gale force which meant the cancellation of Ness Gala, planned for Saturday.  Such a shame, when so much hard work was put in to it by the organizers.  It did make for some quite dramatic skies.



There was also the beautiful rainbow to admire.


Just for a change Highland cattle instead of sheep, they have such a majestic stature and are a joy to sit and watch.



Sadly the weather deteriorated over the weekend so it was indoor pursuits.  I have managed to get a little crafting done which I will share in another post.  As always thank you for your wonderful comments and encouragement.

See you soon.

  3. I don't know what the Ness Gala, is. But it is sad, that the weather, forced its cancellation. -sigh-

    Such fun! An area, being used, in popular books! And readers coming, for place tours. :-)

    Gentle hugs,

  11. So much beauty to explore! I love the highland cattle,too. Where I lived in Minnesota there was a small herd of highland cattle on a farm. Next to the farm was a little stream with a picnic table and I used to love to bring my lunch there on a weekend and watch them graze. Thanks for bringing back that memory!

  16. Aren't they cute! Apart from last week when it was boiling, there's always a chilly wind these days. I expect the Gala organisers are used to cancellations, annoying though.

  21. I've read some of Peter May's Enzo Files series of novels, but had forgotten he wrote the Lewis Trilogy set in Lewis. I shall have to put them on my list. It's a shame that the Gala had to be cancelled because of bad weather. I'm sure you have plenty to keep you occupied indoors, but lovely to get out when you can.

  22. Such a shame when events are cancelled because of the weather. I so enjoyed seeing the Highland Cattle. He is such a big beast. I also enjoyed the sweet photo of you! Have great week. ♥

  23. You live in such a beautiful place! Loved all the amazing views and pretty little boats and cottages. We have a farm just down the road, here in Washington state - all the way across an ocean and a continent - that raises the same cattle. They really are unusual and they have some little calves, too. Lovely to see your sweet face, too! Too bad about the cancelled event, though. Hope things clear up soon. xx Karen

  27. Seems you have so much to see in your area. Sometimes when we're having 100 degree F temperatures here in Texas, a little chilly weather like yours sounds good!

  31. I'm glad that you mentioned your jumper. When I read books from the UK, they often mention jumpers. I never knew and didn't ask, what is it? Now I'm assuming that it's what I call a jacket. Would that be correct? Here in the US, a jumper is a loose sleeveless dress, worn over a blouse.
