September sun and beach

A lovely warm day so couldn’t resist the temptation to go down to the beach. Naturally the camera went too and here are three shots taken there.

I liked the reflections on the wet sand here.

After running comes study – is it a pebble or a shell?
(Actually it was a collection of small marble pebbles.)

Meanwhile I relaxed on the seat at the east end of the beach.

Open-topped bus tour & Notepaper

The bus company in Oban operates an open-topped bus tour. It goes on the road under Connel Bridge on its trip and I took this shot as I came out of the village store in Connel and spotted the bus was passing.

Why was I in Connel Store? I had just delivered some packs of “Connel Bridge” Notepaper to Rosie, so if you are looking for some special writing paper and envelopes Connel Store is the place to go!

Autumn approaches

Weather has been more autumnal than summery up here. Its a bit deceptive though – I look out of the window and put a coat on to go out only to find that while its windy and damp its still quite warm.

I’m testing out Live Writer as an alternative means of posting blog entries.

Victoria Plums growing against a south facing wall. The crop this year is large and the fruit nice and sweet.
