Reporting back with Friday Islay Picture #287 - Imke on remote beach

Friday Islay Picture in stencil

OK, OK, I've been back for almost a week now, but for various reasons didn't get around to start blogging here again. There have been new pictures on the Islay Pictures photoblog though! Anyway, I had a great time on Islay, those who followed IslayBlog on Tumblr and the @islayblog Twitter account might have already grasped that. Today's picture shows two reasons for it, my sister Imke and possibly the remotest beach on Islay:

This is her on the beach at Bàgh an Dà Dhoruis in the far north of Islay. I admit she's dwarfed by the huge and impressive cliffs towering over her despite her being quite tall. We had two fantastic walks, this one to the far north of Islay and another one along the coast north of Saligo.

Apart from that I managed to get in three flights with the quadcopter (at Saligo Bay, at Laphroaig and at Port Charlotte), met a large number of new and old friends (you know who you are, thank you all!), drank some nice Islay whisky, watched various wildlife (two Golden Eagles north of Saligo and a Stoat coming up to my car at the airport were probably the highlights), took a few thousand pictures (of which only a tiny fraction will be published) and generally had a great time.

Hopefully more from all this with new Islay from the air videos, new pictures and more over the coming weeks. For now, have a great weekend!

Sharing and discussing. Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
