Seeing another Aurora last night was the icing on a very lovely Easter cake. Ish. I cannot remember a more beautiful Easter weekend. The weather has been wonderful, there are so many flowers appearing – not to mention the bird activity. My family had an Easter lunch picnic at the old boathouse down below the Treshnish Cottages. It was warm and we sat lazily in the sun watching our picnic cook on the fire in front of us. Scanning the sea for otters, but perhaps we were too noisy. As we walked back up the hill though, the curlews were calling, their distinctive sound filling the late afternoon air.
We had a great sunset, and then when we should have been asleep, we were out in the garden watching this. What an end to a wonderful weekend.
There are more photographs from the weekend here.
PS Farmer joined us for the picnic but lambing is in full swing now and so he is out at all times of day and night in his maternity doula role.
