As you can see I did manage to get the grass down before their arrival but there was a lot of weeds around. The grass is in dire need of cutting again, not for the faint hearted the size of the garden.
We had a lovely stroll around the Butt of Lewis which encompasses the lighthouse, sea on three sides which is an amazing sight. Even the weather did not detract from its beauty.
Lily and Daisy had a ball searching the seas for signs of life and looking at every crag in the rocks for birds.
Every time we go there is a shifting landscape, even the cloud formations and the light changes are a thing of beauty. I don't think I will ever tire of watching the crashing waves in our search for wildlife.
As you can imagine the girls loved the sheep, giving them all names. We also had a fun tour of the stones at Callanish and loved climbing the rocks to get some stunning views of the Loch.
Of course there was a visit to the Centre for tea and cake, it would be rude not to. The surrounding area can be seen and enjoyed from there too so an added delight.
There is beauty all around us and a photo to be taken at every step, so I can only apologise for the overload of pictures. We have been to the stones several times since our move here and many times when visiting and yet each time we go there is a different light, cloud formation or change to the picture and yet the standing stones remain the same. The times of day affects the shadows which gives another completely different picture.
Magical moments from a magical Island. We have certainly found our inner peace and love showing our family around, the Island seems to have worked its magic over them and they too are looking forward to returning. There were so many more tours and glimpses of the Island we now call home but I will save them for another post. Back to reality and the mountain of laundry that has accumulated over the past week, as well as the cleaning and the garden the list is endless. What have you got planned for today? Hopefully something that you enjoy...
See you soon.
