What a Surprise!!!

Hubby had planned an early birthday surprise for me. He wouldn't tell me exactly where we were heading to only that it was in Scotland. On Friday just before we left he told me. We were driving to Glasgow Airport and flying out to the Isle of Barra in the Outer Hebrides on a 13 seater plane (he knows I'm not a very good flyer at the best of times). Well I survived the trip and actually loved all of it (apart from the plane journey). I can't believe we actually landed on a beach!! The weather was absolutely gorgeous while we were there, and we had a lovely long weekend stopping at the Isle of Barra Beach Hotel - The most westerly hotel & pub in Great Britian. We paddled with nosey seals and also got to see 2 otters climb on to some rocks they disappeared quickly tho' once they noticed that they were being watched :( We had a great time and yes Archie came too but I don't think he was very impressed being put into a crate so that we could get him on the plane. We flew back on Monday to grey skies and rain.

    Have a great day!
    Hugs Jeanette :)
