|Leaving Arisaig, the Island of Eigg across the still waters.|
A friend from Vancouver Island just sent me those words from a very beautiful poster. She must have known.
|First stop, an idyllic beach, and a perfect cup of coffee.|
|Sharing the sand - and the view.|
"Before it's your favourite place,
it's a place you've never been."
|Our very mellow friends were, after all, here first.|
These words speak of a deep truth that often becomes evident when one ventures out, away from the familiar.
There are precious rewards when we invite and welcome new experiences into our lives.

|Time out for a short climb.|
|Through the bracken.|
It is only then that there is the possibility of a relationship that will deepen and flourish and endure forever.
|A little "rope work"...|
But that discovery had to be made...in the context of the unknown.
|...to a special place.|
Venturing out to some unknown place invites a precious reward...
|And what a view.|
...a discovery of a new favourite place.
|Lunch...or was that 2nd lunch? :)|
|Return to the launch site...with a new "favourite place". |
