Only one more sleep to go.
It was one of these calm evenings.
The sun has shone for most of the daylight hours.
And the slight breeze that had brought a nip to the air has dropped.
There was to be no clear view of the setting sun.
A thin viel of cloud would hide the sun as it dropped to the horizon.
Nevertheless it was an evening to be out enjoying the beauty that surrounds Tiree.
We made the decision to walk at Ruaig.
From Sgibinis we had a magnificent view across to Mull.
We could even see south to the distant ‘Paps of Jura’ 50 miles away.
It was so calm and peaceful.
In the stillness the call of various birds could be heard.
The sea was so calm that it just gently lapped against the shore.
Although the setting sun was hidden the sky was a picture.
What a colourful palette the artist had chosen to employ.
And the pools on the sand acted as mirrors.
To think the weather forecast for tomorrow was even better.
It was looked like the day might be perfect for a sail.
A sail organised by Tiree Sea Tours.
From Tiree I have looked out to Skerryvore Lighthouse 13 miles distant.
I visited the Alan Stevenson Museum at Hynish.
I have read about the Lighthouse.
Oh! To view it close up.
This is Life on Tiree full of anticipation.
The camera is surely a must.
