I've been having a lot of fun with the hipstamatic app this week. Here are some of my favourites from our last Seven Days - so many things that made me smile.
The week started in sunshine. I loved glancing out of the bedroom window and seeing the sheep sunbathing.
We took a chilly walk up to the Callanish Stone Circle - 5000 years old, but still so impressive. No-one really knows for sure why it was built - for what purpose, or by whom. There is much speculation about it being connected to the lunar cycles or ancient Earth worship rituals. In any case - it is a very special place to be.
On our weekly visit to Stornoway, we usually park the truck down at the harbour, where the overnight freight ferry, Muirneag, is moored during the day - part of the ferry service for all the Western Isles. It is not the most reliable ship, and its run is frequently cancelled due to the weather conditions. We like its bright colours though.
And one of the results of our trip to town was a feast of the freshest seafood you could find.
On a walk down to the shore, we were beset by a sudden Atlantic squall, so took shelter in the nearby visitor's centre for a coffee - and a spot of knitting with a view.
But the sun came out for a while, so we headed down to the pier, where a local fisherman keeps his nets and lobster pots. I love the cheerful tangle of orange and turquoise.
But by the end of the week, the sheep had to scrape the snow away from the grass to find their breakfast. Part of the ever changing weatherscape of the Isles.
Heading into another Seven Days now - still Winter, but with Spring on the horizon. I wish you joys and blessings for the week ahead.
