The snow disappeared as quickly as it came and gave way to a beautiful sunny day albeit a little windy. I managed to get the washing dry to add to the ever growing pile of ironing. Today is dark and rainy so the ideal day to get it done. We did get a couple of feathered visitors.
It was cold but quite calm and a joy to watch some of the birds in the crags. The weather is so changeable here going from one extreme to the other in a matter of minutes. Last week on our trip to Stornoway it was like a Summers day, the sun shining brightly and feeling quite warm. We felt that the long Winter was finally over and that Spring was starting to emerge. We had our usual stroll around the harbour enjoying the different aspects of the Castle in the distance and choosing a boat for our little adventures. We weren't tempted by the Fish and Chip shop despite the wonderful aroma but instead opted for the fresh fish shop and came back with a wide variety of fish for the freezer.
Then onto Ann Lanntair for the exhibition of New Photographic work from Scotland and the Nordic countries by female practitioners. A collaboration between Dr Katherine Parhar of Wildfires and FOCAS Scotland, Alex Boyd of Ann Lanntair and the Flow Festival of Photography.
I found it quite thought provoking as we explored the different images.
For such a small Island we are certainly blessed with so many events going on. Now that we are not going away I intend to explore the different workshops that are going on. Lambing has started, it is a joy to see new life in and around the many local crofts. I will be out and about to photograph them as soon as it stops raining. I am definitely a fair weather girl.
As always I am thankful for your lovely comments and well wishes. I am trying hard to catch up with you all so if I haven't visited I will very soon. Take care.
See you soon.
