Holiday snaps part 3 - some of the little details...
N is now 3.
Bilingual road signs.
Mallaig fishing boats.
Tha Jacobite steam train arriving at Mallaig.
National speed limit applies.
A little house in the hills above Mallaig.
Love the orange roof and purple door, and the tiny extension.
A little bit of alfresco crochet above Mallaig at the end of my walk (the others were at the swimming pool). I was attempting to make Nikki Trench's Summer Evening Shawl (from this book) but I am starting to realise just how long this is going to take and all those chain stitches are soooo boring, I do not have high hopes of it ever being finished. It has been Put Aside for now.
A female common blue butterfly. Despite it being "common" it is the first time I have ever seen a blue butterfly. I was quite excited.
Rusty ring in a rock.
Seashells. We brought some home to add to our collection.
Rock pools with sea anemones.
Lots of tiny fish scooped up from the sea and sand.
Pinchy crab, holiday toenails.
Nice old Massey Ferguson tractor.
Brambles and thistles.
Pretty but prickly.
N meets a hen.
The bikes. We have a new contraption called a "followme" which allows A's bike to be attached to one of ours. It's apparently more stable than a tag-along and also means she can still use her own bike and ride independently when she likes. We like it.
Teddy came too.
A boat in blue. At Port Appin on the way home.
Port Appin bunting.
Port Appin post box.
Cafe table view. Then home.
