Tour of the Western isles: Barra to North Uist

 Barra Airport

In contrast to Thursday, yesterday was just a brilliantly sunny day. A day that, in the days of film, would have been sponsored by Kodak – impossible not to take lots of photos. We made our way leisurely from Barra to North Uist. Time to post just a few now – will post more later.

Quite lovely Jim. Wish I could post some pics of the scenery from the Rockies close by here.

Jean. Thanks. More ideal biking weather today, especially later on. Hope to post more tomorrow morning, though connection is slow and erratic here.

Bob. Thanks. What about your own blog – 'Bob's rocky moments'?!
