Taking A Break

Grab a jacket as there is a little rain and buckle up I will take you for a 5/10 minute drive to see some spectacular views.  I promise you it is worth the trip.  We have to pass one of the mushroom bus stops that always make me smile, designed to stop the wind whichever direction the wind is blowing.



 
The Butt of Lewis, standing on the cliff edge it is like standing on the edge of the world.
 
 
You certainly need to keep hold of your hat, the wind is relentless.
 
 
The perfect jacket but not very sensible footwear, I have a lot to learn.
 




 
I told you it was worth it and the added bonus, a lighthouse.  It just keeps getting better.
 





 
 
There are even sheep grazing up there, it is amazing that they do not fall off.
 

 
It was definitely worth the drive don't you think?  Can't loiter, there is bread just coming out of the oven perfect with some jam and a pot of tea.  Don't be shy, come on in and take a seat...
 
 
See you soon.

  4. Ah yes, the relentless winds of Western Scotland. No doubt the winds are even more fierce on the Western Isles. Loved seeing your photos very much, thank you for sharing. x

  15. Thank you for taking us with you on this drive. The wind does look relentless and I absolutely am in love with your bus shelters. Such an ingenious and simple idea. Sheep, the sea, wind and homemade bread at the end! I can't think of a more perfect way to spend time with a friend unless it would be actually sitting and knitting or crocheting with yarn from the sheep. Have a wonderful weekend. Blessings, Betsy

  17. Smashing, just my cup of tea. I would worry that the weather would be too tricky though.

  18. Love the bus shelters. What splendid views and I guess it would be very windy out against the sea:)

  19. Craggy rocks with waves crashing against them and then that amazingly tall lighthouse which must have many steps up to the top - you've taken us on a wonderful drive to the Butt of Lewis not too far from where you live. Very invigorating! Thank you for sharing.

  20. Some of the pictures take my breath away. It really is beautiful. You must wake up every morning excited to be living your dream. My daughter Lynn (amothersjournal.com) would love to there!

  22. Would love to be in a howling wind, something about it is comforting to me. You take a great picture there with that beautiful scenery all around.
    How I would love to have a slice of that bread with tea. Gosh it looks so good!!! A lot of butter dripping off of the sides. Yummm

  24. Thanks for the tour! I enjoyed every bit of it! Oh I wish I could have some of that bread with the tea I'm going to have in a few minutes! You are making me hungry! I talked with a customer the other day that used to live in London. Not seen him before but seemed like a nice man and we chatted a bit. Have a good weekend!!

  25. What a wild and gorgeous spot for a little outing. The scenery is stunning and I'm glad the wind didn't blow you away. That bread looks like a yummy treat after being out in the fresh air.

  26. Thank you for sharing this. You live in a fantastic place. And yes please fresh bread, butter and jam will do me nicely.

  27. It was nice to gonalong with you, Lorraine, and yes different footwear would be better next outing. The sheep seem very content and not minding the wind in the least. Coming home to fresh baked bread is a treat..when should we all join you for tea?

  28. Definitely worth the trip and the battle with the wind for that view! I love the old lighthouses and the stories about them. We have one here in my town but it's not very picturesque and visible only by boat.

  29. YOu had me with the beautiful views then you throw in some sheep pictures and I want to book a flight there immediately.

  30. your bread looks so yummy. the views of the coast and the lighthouse made me want to visit the seashore.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I would LOVE to come for bread and tea. That looks like my favorite kind of bread - not wimpy like the store bought, but chewy and with some body.

    Love the photo of the seagulls in the heather(?) or whatever.

  32. I may have said this before but I honestly feel goosebumps for you and your honey when I look at your posts because your love for your new home really comes thru in your words and your photos. Those views are just beautiful!! When we visited Ireland years ago, I remember thinking how it was possible for the sheep to graze at the Cliffs of Moher. It was so darned windy there and there they were just chomping away!! Lol!! xoxo

  34. Oh, no. I just commented on your current post that I've finally figured out that a jumper is a jacket. But in this post, you mentioned that you wore your jacket, so now I'm confused again. Please - what is a jumper?
