Holy Island July and August

The best thing to do is make like sheep - wander about a bit and graze at leisure, find the odd watering hole and stop a while, wander and graze again. I don't think enough people do that. We're all so busy rushing around with scowls on our faces. Even the Island doesn't elicit a smile from some, so busy are they making themselves unhappy - want want want! I even heard some people talking about shopping in the supermarket. W?H?Y? Have we really become so souless? And my wee camera clicked away and took a few visual memories, yes but there were folk with tripods and zoom lenses stacked like dinner plates.

We went back to retrieve the coat that had been left hanging in the wardrobe the first time :) Not that any excuse was needed. It had been too long and visits were well overdue and it was lovely to get reacquainted with our friend and with the island. I'll be back soon.
