A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood!

We’re off! We would take a ferry to Mull with a delightful tea break at Ffionport, with another ferry ride to Iona.

My sistah Meredith is always ready for a photo! Gotta love it. Also in the picture is Richard, a Scotsman and Phillipa’s husband, Caryn and Simon our bus driver.

I was sure glad that I bought that sweatshirt is all I can say!

I’m sure that the color of the sky gives you an idea of the weather!

This was our view at lunch time! And speaking of lunch, I enjoyed a little local brew. Well why not? I was on vacation! It was very good BTW.

a fabulous picture of 2 very special people Meredith and Phillipa. Thank you for making this trip so wonderful!

I was able to get in a fair amount of retail therapy, mugs, a tea cup, shortbread, Scottish salt and a little wool. That was until Meredith and I ran into the local felines!

And all too soon it was time to leave!

It was quite an enjoyable ride back as we ran across these roadside surprises such as these “coos” that were enjoying their tea. Thanks to Caryn who shared this pictured with me. You know you just had to be on the right side of the bus.

We would have our last night together at a restaurant down the street from the hotel. A very delightful evening! I was pleasantly surprised when I saw how great these pictures came out of Oban at dusk.

a few days ago I will admit that I was anxious to get home, but now I really don’t want to leave this beautiful country!

I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years.

  1. Vicky, absolutely gorgeous pictures especially the ones taken at dusk. I forgot to ask you in my previous comment, are your 2 new kitties siblings? They seem to get along so well. My cat loves people but hates other cats.
