In spite of the red sky in the morning warning, the day stayed dry though breezy. We did the morning keep fit trot along the lane - I think we'd seize up if we didn't! Later Al came round with the best ever toy to keep us happy and amused for the afternoon. A Truck barrow borrowed from a friend. A motorised wheel barrow on caterpillar tracks. It loves carrying logs up the hill more than we do especially since the hill seems to get steeper every day. Work done and time for a beer....or two.

Inverewe Garden is always worth a visit. Even on a chilly November afternoon with the sun low in the sky there is still something to see. Garden life hanging on by a thread, (except for the cabbages which are huge), keeps the winter at bay for just a little longer! I was tempted to pick a nice lettuce for tea but thought I shouldn't.

Ps... I took the photo of the log saw horse behind the Lavatera in July. The Lavatera has long since finished flowering!

It's been a very soggy wishy washy wet overcast sort of day. Tomorrow will be cold and sunny - we shall see
It's a perfect morning for kicking about on the shore
A little boat,tethered to an old weathered tree covered in sea weed, waits for the tide to turn
And, yes, I agree it is a bit on the gloomy side but staying indoors because of the weather I would never see this wealth of colour at my feet sparkling and glinting in the drizzle.
Water and trees tumble over the edge. It's all so higgledy piggledy. I love it. Chaos reigns here!
Autumn leaves and sea weed combine to form a deep spongy carpet
slippery rock faces, splashing and dripping water
An abundance of light and colour tucked away in the chaotic undergrowth
I wanted to take this piece of wood home with me, but it was too heavy and very very wet and soggy.
