It’s a grey, rainy October day and I have neglected my blog for too long over a busy summer.
August started with a trip to the spectacular Isle of Mull, first going down to London then catching the Caledonian Sleeper train for an overnight journey to Glasgow.
Then another train to Oban and finally the ferry across to Mull.
I’ve wanted to visit Mull for a long time and it didn’t disappoint. It is stunningly beautiful and has wonderful wildlife. I was extremely lucky to spend an hour watching three otters fishing, grooming and playing and saw magnificent sea eagles many times.
I also visited Iona which is a ten minute ferry ride off the south west tip of Mull, and which is breathtakingly beautiful with white sand and clear waters more like a Caribbean island. Even its rocks are lovely.
A week wasn’t long enough to spend on Mull and I hope I’ll return one day.
Then it was home again and back to work doing the edits of ‘Secrets of the East End Angels’ and starting book three of the series.
