Photos From The Motherland

‘Twas July 2015, and I went back to the Motherland (the UK // United Kingdom // Great Britain // Scotland & England to be Precise in my case) for a very quick week trip! Obviously, a couple of pix were taken  of my wee adventures up in the Outer Hebrides and down south in England. As I currently live in the lovely, warm/baking hot desert of Arizona, it’s always amazing to get home to bask in the lovely convos with family and seep up all the greenery that these well rained upon pastured lands procure. Highlights below …

My Auntie Mel’s lamby!!! My Aunt is a crofter and raises sheep and cows – a serious business that she absolutely loves! She has a connection with her animals so deep that she has named a cow after my mum, another cow after her best friend … just touching!

Eileen Donan Castle

The picturesque and iconic castle that we always pass when driving down from the Isle of Skye on the route to Inverness. It’s old, it has a footbridge, ummmm yes! Lovely stuff!

Let’s just say that when my time comes, I wouldn’t mind this “room” with a view here at Luskentyre Cemetery on the Isle of Harris!

I love, adore, smile at the site of these hairy balls of cuteness! So much so that I have a highland cow head hanging in my home! Calm down … not a real one … one of these lovelies by Abigail Ahern! Highland cows are real-life teddy cows – and they’re ginger, an empowerment of the genetic Scottish trait!

This is Boe … or Bailey … I get confused, as they’re like twins, but they’re not. My lil cousin has two of these lovely puggabillies, and this is a true “it’s been a tough day” face.

My cousin can be bit camera shy, but she also likes to show off her pugs! This is Bailey … or Boe … I really need to pay attention, absolutely pants at putting names to faces.
