Getting started....

It is with a bit of arm-twisting from Nick Simmons that I launch myself into the blogosphere. And not without a lot of trepidation, I might add. What is easy and natural for my youngest friends looms large in my psyche. So, for those of you who stumble across me, please read and comment gently if you wish. My ramblings should improve with time - I hope.

These pictures are from my last trip to one of my most favorite places in the world - Scotland! And, as you can guess by my last name, the country of my heritage. I spent time with Margaret Evans on one of her wonderful "Paintaways" (OK - I tried to make this a link but failed...) to the Isle of Skye and then drove north to Nairn - a small, seaside town on the Moray Firth. Scotland is a painter's paradise and I even love the weather! No extremes of heat just bountiful beauty. And that's the extent of my lyrical waxing for now...


  1. The link works! Beautiful pictures, a few of those look like potential watercolors (hint hint). Welcome to the 'sphere!

  2. Thanks, Nick! Potential watercolors...hmmmm....landscapes, castles or raptors?

  3. Aaah Scotland, this will be the destination of our honeymoon (just have to wait until there ... 2011) !
    Thanks for sharing these beautiful pics !

  4. Catherine..If you've never been you're in for a real treat! Scotland is one of the most beautiful countries - and an extremely interesting one as well. Happy future honeymoon! Thanks for visiting and commenting.
