A winter break in Scotland. Mists melt into clear skies and still waters. The sun is low over the horizon. Liquid gold waves kiss the rocks and dissolve onto the shore. A pathway of sunlight leads to the hidden. Short daylight hours mean that as in one direction the dawn sun rises behind masts, in … Continue reading
We have often travelled to Canada. We’ve skied many times in the Rockies and Quebec. We’ve camped in the Rockies and British Columbia. We’ve ‘done’ the Inside Passage on the Ferries.
