To Absent Friends

After shuttling the boats back to Skyak's home, we got showered and warmed up, then enjoyed a most pleasant evening.

Everyone had been asked to bring a dish towards a "pot luck supper" for the Saturday evening, and my goodness we ate well!  Among the highlights was the pot of local Skye mussels prepared by Gordon; very tasty!

Ken and Douglas had unfortunately been unable to make the get-together, so one of our first thoughts was to toast "absent friends".  We also raised a glass to the success of the DVD which was filmed partly on our trip and which has (so far) won two awards

Our third toast was to another absent friend - the Saint who never was.


  1. Hello Ian, I might not have been with you in person but I was in spirit...Slàinte mhòr agad!

    As it happens, my knee was so sore on Saturday, I could not face the return trip to Glencoe to see Jennifer's show.

    Hope to see you soon,
    Douglas :o)

  2. Agus leatsa Douglas!

    We'll obviously have to do it again.... :o)

    Hope the knee is less nippy soon
