First of all, the featured photo above. It may be my vivid imagination but does this look like a biblical scene? This was taken on the northern Atlantic coast where there is an area of water inside a sandbar. Today the water was filled with cattle – something we have never seen before. Could it be the extreme (for Barra) heat that encouraged the cows to take a paddle? (Note the odd cow escaping up the hill beyond.) Animals on Barra tend to do their own thing so I wouldn’t be surprised if it was their own idea.
The weather forecasts have been almost monotonous of late and for a change Scotland has had the laugh on the south-east. For me, perfect weather – really warm but with a fresh breeze that keeps it all in proportion. Wonderful.
Lots of photos for today and great to be back on date! For Dorothy there is a bit of botanical work to do at last…
There are many sheep and lambs here but this trio was too good to go unphotographed!
More boats (some more seaworthy than others)
Down at Castlebay a boat full of passengers began its journey – probably to Mingulay or another far off island.

Peter walked up to the wind turbine and found this…
And now – the moon.
There were many more outstanding photographs but no more room! Lovely day!
