Good Evening its Monday again.

 

 

                   

 

 

 

Good Evening, so here we are at the end of another summers day and the rain is still pouring down. Stuart and I did not bother going out today which is very unusual for a Monday as we always go out. Today with the weather being as it was we decided to stay home and watch the Olympic games. Great stuff.

Last night Stuart booked a holiday for us at the beginning of September, after all the schools have gone back. We are having a week in the misty isle Skye. We have not been to Skye since the bridge was build don’t know what it will be like going over the bridge to Skye just does not sound as good as over the sea to Skye. The last time we were there it rained for the two weeks hence it taking so long for us to return it must have been 1995. It is such a lovely spot I hope the weather allows for me to take photographs of the wonderful scenery Skye has to offer. Really looking forward to it less than three weeks to wait.

I have not had my camera out for some time as I have not been anywhere different to take pictures that you have not seen before. I did miss out on a family being rescued from the sea at St Andrews a couple of weeks ago they had wandered out and the tide came round behind them there was plenty of help arrived very quickly in the shape of the Coast Guard but even they had bother as the could not walk out to get them, in the end they were rescued by boat. All was well but they all looked a bit cold as the sea at St Andrews is never warm, it is the North Sea.

The schools up here go back tomorrow so that’s the end of the summer holidays for another year. Maybe once they are back the weather will improve a bit here’s hoping.

I think that’s about it for today so till next time,

Love

Still nearly a couple of weeks until our schools go back.  I hope you have a good holiday on Skye and that we have an Indian Summer so that the weather is pleasant.

I'll look forward to the pictures and I do hope the weather is good for your holiday.  It will be a little quieter there with the children going back to school and that will be good.  Some of our trees are already getting fall color.  It seems the season is changing way too soon.  'On Ya' - ma

Friends of ours have gone up to Scotland two weeks ago on holiday and it looks as if they have had a very dismal time with the weather and all!!!  I didn't know there was a bridge over to the Isle of Skye.  I have always wanted to go there.  Hopefully some day I will have the chance.  I hope you have a lovely holiday there! (and that the weather is great!)
