The Best Thing About Going Away


Sunset over Gott Bay

If there isn’t a saying already there ought to be one for “the best thing about going away from Tiree is the coming back”.  The outward crossing was on a glassy sea and the return journey was sun kissed resulting in yet another spectacular sunset.

Our trip to the Mainland involved time spent in Oxfordshire and London. Once again the contrast with ‘Life-On-Tiree’ stood out. How do you compare Peckham Rye Park with the machair or the beaches on Tiree?

It is important to spend time with family, to play ball with your grandson in the park, and equally important to attend the ‘Thanksgiving’ (funeral service) of a friend and former colleague. Yet, it is good to be home and at home here on Tiree.
