Saturday 31 March 2012: Homeward Bound
So farewell to Lewis, and hello stressful drive home. The overheating issue on the car meaning we were getting dire warnings all the way back to stop. Practicalities meant that we opted for a hobbling 50mph and stopping every 20 miles to check strategy that got us home in one piece.
Tomorrow to the dealer!
The sun came out to bid us on our way, driving past the shielings once more. Oh, and Calmac comes up with the goods again with a cracking fish and chips to see us on our way (okay, Mel opted for the healthier baked potato).
Now, for anyone who is interested... A bird list, both seen from the cottage itself (actually from the cottage) and elsewhere on the island:
Lewis Cottage Birds
Black Headed Gull
Great Black Backed Gull
Great Northern Diver
Other Lewis Birds
Long Tailed Duck
