Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Passing Place


It’s been a while since I posted, we’ve been on our travels, we’ve been winding our way along the single track roads the Outer Hebrides, off the west coast of Scotland

passing place

It’s a very beautiful part of the world, with dramatic landscapes, and the  most exquisite white beaches

and turquoise seas.


I’ve places to share and tales to tell, oh, and quite a few photos to edit.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. I was parked in a passing place for a very short while yesterday and as always worried slightly about whether I was going to die while there.

  2. Never in my life would I have imagined that sand! I’m eager to read more about your travels. I know a blogger who was raised in the Outer Hebrides, and she’s compelled to return often.

  3. Lucky you. Lovely pictures, I look forward to more along with some tales. xx
