Sep 13, 2016 – [Tuesday] Black & White: Clouds at Lismore

Isle of Lismore, Scotland, taken on September 4, 2016

The hike on the Isle of Lismore was blessed with the most perfect weather ever – even the clouds were dramatically gorgeous! At the beginning of the hike, I looked back as the ferry that brought me to the island departed for Oban again. What a beautiful day! (See the original photo in colour.)

Sep 12, 2016 – [Monday] Anything Goes: Toad

Isle of Lismore, Scotland, taken on September 4, 2016

During my hike on the Isle of Lismore, I was wary of stepping on poop that would appear anywhere in the tracks. I almost did step on something that I thought was a pile of poop but as I swayed sideways to avoid it, I realized that it wasn’t poop at all – it was something that moved! Upon a closer look, I saw myself staring at a huge toad (if that was a toad?) and it staring back at me. Sure glad I didn’t step on it!

Apr 13, 2016 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Lismore from Mull

Isle of Mull, Scotland, taken on June 14, 2015

On Mull, I spotted a white lighthouse almost floating in the water in a distance. I asked the bus driver what that was, and he said, “That’s Lismore.” I later found that the lighthouse was indeed Eilean Musdile on the island of Lismore, not too far from Mull. Such beautiful scenery, and the lighthouse appeared so small in the midst of the majestic mountains in the background!
