In the grand scheme of things Applecross is a pretty decent place to live despite all the ups and downs, the stresses of community work with breakdowns and installing, designing new systems. Every now and again you get a little time which if you are in the moment is worth so much to the spirit. Although it was not a very productive day in that I did not go to sea, there was a lot on the cards. I left slightly early for more work on my arm at Shieldaig so I could stop on the top of the Bealach. I was not disappointed. I had the company of two of my best friends. Alison was on the way back from a Rural Housing Conference and I was not sure when she was back in Applecross. Weather was bright and fresh,
snow crisp and clean, Eilidh and Dougal ready for a mess about in the snow. They stopped briefly for one
but the way they gambled about made for a laugh out loud. Dougal of course has to go one better and ruffles his fur in the wind.
Stunning views all around and one never, ever tires of them. Although I was still time limited that twenty minutes felt as though the weight had dropped off and all was well in the world. Surely a solution to some of the worlds problems would be to take Trump, Cameron, Putin et al, take them to the top of the Bealach and all their issues over Trident, Mexicans and what suit you wear would pale into insignificance when they look around at the wonder of the world they live in.
