Yesterday I drove over to the other side of the Island to see friends in Uig. It's not a long drive - about 40 minutes - and I left at 1015 having said that I'd be there around 11am. I'm a Edwards. The Edwardses have a gene which ensures that they are never late. So when I was held up for a number of reasons on the road and also could not resist stopping for some photos, time became scarce and I started running late. By this time I was out of range for a mobile/cell phone signal. By the time I arrived I was 20 or so minutes late and there was general consternation and grovelling apologies for causing worry were the order of the day.
I had, however, managed these photos of the journey.
This is the road I often use for part of the journey. It is not the main road (our main roads are actually very good) but it is considerably shorter and much more picturesque than the main road.
The houses are Airidhs or Sheilings and I have mentioned them before. I really must get around to doing a post about them at some time. At least one of my readers will have a little pause for thought if she reads this.
