What a beautiful summer’s afternoon!
With blue sky and azure blue sea to revel in.
And with a chauffeur to hand we head to West Hynish.
The seal colony at West Hynish is so amazing
It has never let us down and today was no disappointment.
Even from the roadside we could see the seals lazing on the rocks
Some remained on the skerries.
Others slipped into the sea.
Some swam so close.
The more adventurous came so close to us.
Then all at once they would disappear with a plop.
They were so numerous – there must have been at least forty.
For the first time ever we could hear some of them cry.
At times it sounded as if they were gargling.
Sea and seals were sparkling in the sun.
Young and not so young were enjoying the sunny blue water.
To think that we have such wonderful neighbours.
They even appreciated our son’s singing!
