Dreaming Stones: Full Spectrum

We had a day to play on the Isle of Skye… there are undoubtedly many worse things to do with a Monday morning. Crossing the Skye Bridge in brilliant sunshine, we were certain of a lovely day’s exploration. Across the water, tantalising islands rose from the mist. Blue peaks gave us shy glimpses and there may have been squeaking from the driver’s seat.

Ten minutes later, as we pumped up the ever-deflating tyre yet again, the heavens opened. Serious clouds, heavy with rain, emptied themselves upon the landscape, filling countless streams to overflowing, nourishing the waterfalls and silvering the morning.

It didn’t matter… we had decided to drive first to the little ferry port of Uig so we could see how long it would take and know the way for our early start the next day. Meanwhile, we were keeping our eyes open for a bed and breakfast with a ‘vacancies’ sign as we had booked nowhere for the night. Somewhere close to Uig would be handy. Mind you, we were making slow progress, as every turn in the very twisty road opened new and magical vistas and, wherever possible, I wanted to stop and look.

    I’ve always wondered if the Isle of Skye was anywhere near as beautiful as the name implies. It looks even more so than I imagined. I hope you were compelled to stand, hair whipping in the wind, on a bluff somewhere while a lonesome bag pipe screeled in the distance. I’d love to see those pictures.

    That rainbow sea is…magical. What other word to use? All the colors in all the photos have a special quality. (K)
