Today is much like yesterday, weather-wise, but without the wind! Peter took Alfie down for his early morning walk on the beach and was rewarded with a flock of Sanderlings along the water’s edge (featured)
Alfie made a pretty picture amongst the Thrift on the rocks…
Down at the airport there was a dinky little private plane by the fence. A young man and girl came along and, after testing various bits and pieces, got in. The girl took the controls and it wasn’t long before they were off, taxi-ing over the sand before taking gracefully to the air and heading in the direction of the mainland. They looked in their 20s/30s – how romantic to fly to Barra in your own plane! I was envious!
We had the usual cake and coffee in the café and then drove back to the Old Jetty where we managed to park in a good place and then took Alfie down to the wonderful white sand beach.
Where else can you see water this clear off a British beach?
I managed to do a bit of painting…
and we got talking to a chatty couple from Yorkshire who were, like us, fans of this part of the world. They were serious motorhomers and he was as brown as a berry.
Back at the campsite where, eventually, the sun started to set amidst a rosy glow…
Wow – incredibly clear water again, looks amazing!
Great colours for the skies and seas. Sunset is gorgeous.
I just love that white sand and blue sea.
I can’t believe the water is so clear, its amazing!
