Days away

Am just back from a few days campervanning in Kintyre. Highlights were: much better weather than was expected – ie sunshine and very little rain; glistening, crisp,white shell sand beaches; a little dog running on the beach dodging the waves; sand martins zooming over a river, they were flying in and out of their burrows at amazing speed; over 1000 oyster catchers in and around the beach and links golf course. I also loved the sense of space, Machrihanish beach for instance, looks straight out over the Atlantic and is used for surfing in the right weather conditions. I kept an eye out for a “sea bean” from the Carribean, but all to no avail – maybe another year.

Coming home is a little more problematic. All of a sudden I realise there are lots of jobs to do. But what the heck, where is that CD of Mull of Kintyre?

    Very descriptive post. I loved it. What is a “sea bean”?
    We went to the Oregon coast last Sunday and I’ll be posting two unusual photos that I took – on Thursday.
    I love Mull of Kintyre!!!

    As far as I know it is the seed pod of a Caribbean plant called Mucuna – the beans are about 2ins oval and highly polished looking black. Very tactile. I have seen them in a parishioner’s house on Oronsay (an island in my former parish – she had found them on the beach.)

    Wow. Now I want to find one. Not likely in the Pacific!
