A taste of freedom

Little shop in Port Appin

my feet in a little mountain stream (hallo Luisa!)
on the way to Easdale, Isle of Seil

I am resisting making that step back into the workaday, the autumn, the end of swimming and sweating. Only now that I am back and once more "chained" to my desk am I truly appreciating the taste of being outdoors all day in Scotland, how delicious the fresh sea air was and the clean smell of mint, the colours of the flowers and the heather. Even the slight grey mist and the drizzle seem so mild and benevolent. Here the sun is out today, and it is cold.
