Sunsets in Scotland




As many of you will know because I did say I was going to be away along with the fact I have not been in the grand world of cyberspace in over a week . . . . Thus indicating that I have in fact not been here, but have been away. In fact I have been living in a wooden shed just a few feet from the sea about ten miles from the great metropolis of Inverness.  OK in world terms Inverness is not a great metropolis, but in terms of the North of Scotland it is.  Now many things happened (OK I lie) which I will tell of in the next couple of days assuming not much happens to interrupt the flow, such as the internet playing up seriously badly which it appears to have done since our return yesterday. I was told there was a huge storm locally and much lightning and huge bangs, so maybe that has caused the problems.

While away we obtained a treasure chest saw a pirate ship, fed a one legged Blackbird, found much sea-glass, went Ooooooooo at one of the most stunning sunsets I have ever seen. Did not see the famous dolphins of Inverness. Had a great meal in a place while driving. Went back and had another great meal later in the week. Bought a head from a man. Drew some pictures.  Pointed at snow on the mountains. Saw an oilrig and a jack-up. Went to a cheese shop that only sold Norwegian Cheese and was run by a Norwegian. Saw a huge cat called Ben who was huge. Tied a chair to a post as well as many other things along the way.

Of course how much of this adventure I tell will depend on whether I remember stuff, have time to write it all and the key factor, how much money Steven Spielberg will pay for the film rights to the story.

So that’s it I am off now having told you all very little indeed, but then my diary is a bit like that really in general, full of words which somehow avoid issues like England losing to Italy at football. I have added this because I only recently found out. Although I suspected as much as no one has mentioned it today


No it really looked like this at 11.00pm

  1. You are back! I felt like a bear in high bear nation. I think that means a bear that lives on a mountain, actuaLLy a complete nation of bears, high altitude bears.

    1. Yo Mr ESB I am indeed back after a short break in the high bear nation of Scotland, although it lacks bears and dolphins it seems. But it has very light nights at this time of year due to its northern position.

    2. I lived fairly north in South Dakota as a child. I will have to see how it compares to Scotland in latitude.

    1. The more detail I give you Miss Lily the less interesting it will become, life is like that. . . . .

      It was an awesome sky, although the following night was grey with added grey.

    1. No midges Mr H which was good, I think we have more of the little beasts at home in the wilds of Shropshire although they dont have that same nasty bite like the ones in Scotland. I think I could say the same about the shoppers in the supermarkets, they were scary up there.

  4. You tied a chair to a post?! And nobody stopped you?! Madness. Also, I love sunsets, and that appears to be a very nice one.
