hi all - just had a very kind message asking how I am as the blog has not been updated for so long
I am better now but had a horrid chest infection in Stornoway and feeling low mistakenly clicked a link and brought in the most appalling virus which ate everything on the laptop I had to close all my internet account and change my cards, and have just go a new mac book as a replacement. Almost all of my files and photos have been destroyed and I am having to learn how to work in apple rather than windows (its supposed to be more virus proof)
Anyway I think I am nearly there and should be updating the blog any day now. If you haven't been following my travels I had got as far as the West Highlands and was just about to take Thebus over the Applecross Pass, then we went over the Skye bridge and took the ferry to Harris for the start of a tour of the Outer Hebrides. I got to Iona and Fingal's Cave, sailed on the last sea going paddle steamer, saw the solstice sunrise at stonehenge and am now in Cornwall. Minack Theatre to see The Tempest last night and travelling to Barbara Hepworth Gardens tomorrow.
Seen some wonderful gardens, my favourite so far were the ones at Inverewe, and I hope to make it to Heligan whilst I am in Cornwall
All the best
