Early morning on the Shug trail

An early morning walk the other day on the Shug trail was a delight... Judy and I spotted a deer and two baby fawns and a pair of beavers attending to the big dam by the bridge at mile 2. For a second or two we spotted the belted kingfisher but the bird is so shy it flees at the slightest movement.

Return to Iona

Judy and I visited Iona again two weeks ago. 
We were last there six years ago in 2012 just before we emigrated to the USA.
The place is timeless and, this time, bathed in spectacular sunshine all the time we were there.

We then went on to visit Iceland and were greeted by gray skies and emerging sunshine and, then, immense landscapes that stretched away into distance.
