Travel Theme: Colorful

Tobermory, Isle of Mull, Scotland

Tobermory is the largest town on the Isle of Mull. It’s a beautiful sea port with colorful houses and beautiful trees. I especially love the reflection of the buildings in the bay.

Travel Theme: Belonging

Waiting for the brideIn the village of Luss on the shores of Loch Lomond is a beautiful, very quaint kirk. We happened to wander into the village the same day as a wedding, and we caught the groom and his father waiting for the rest of the wedding party to arrive for the ceremony. We had passed the bride and her attendants having some last-minute pictures snapped at a cemetery just down the road, so we knew his smile wasn’t in vain. It was fun to see the men all decked out in their finery so perfectly fitting for Scotland.

Travel Theme: Arches

We just returned from the land of a thousand (I don’t believe I’m exaggerating here) ruined castles, cathedrals, and abbeys. Arches abound in the land of King Arthur and Brits, and I love it! Here are some arches from Jedbrough and Paisley Abbeys (one a ruin, the other still functioning as a church).
