A grand day out
July is show season here on Lewis. Every week from now until August there is a local show somewhere. The first of these is the Uig Gala, held on the machair by the stunning Reef beach . What a setting - and what a glorious day!
Hebrides Alpha bouncy castle.
But the star of the show was the wonderful beach. Sigh - will I ever tire of the beaches here? I don't think so somehow. James met up with a friend from Croileagan and they spent ages filling up an old bucket with sand and them emptying it out again. Such important work, to be sure.
And just to say a belated Happy Independence Day to all my US friends. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday. Some of the local sheep seemed to be celebrating too. xx
