Lovely trip north today – once past the Glasgow traffic the roads quietened very quickly and the drive was easy and varied. Glorious physical scenery is further beautified by weather changes almost by the minute. One moment brightest sunshine, the next the mountains and lochs – sometimes mirror-like, sometimes quite choppy, can be shrouded in atmospheric mist. A picnic and ice cream stop in Inverary afforded an admiring view of the Duke of Argyll’s imposing castle and a photo-op with the little fishing puffer Vital Spark I’d remembered enjoying back in 2010. Our home for the night in Oban provides a grandstand view of ferries coming and going between Hebridean islands, and the call of Iona and meeting up with fellow contemplatives and writers there tomorrow makes for peaceful evening hours
