...nearly didn't get this post done. I forgot all about preparing one yesterday and thought I would be back in plenty time to get it done today.  But as I type it now there is less than an hour to the usual schedule time and there is a real sense of 'beat the presses'!

What did I get caught up in?  Well yesterday I had taken a second look at a flat I really like here in Dunoon.  Watch this space folks  &*<>

Afternoon, I was out and about with the 'Nik', for the day was alive with low Scottish light, the scenery blending a palette of silvers, greys, lavenders... The sea was like glass, molten and reflective.

"Star" catch of the day!

Air as crisp and fresh as new cotton sheets, soft lapping of the waves and the dragging of the shingles.

...and this could be my doorstep...

Then today, I took a bus ride back over to the Isle of Bute. Some decisions are to be made in the very near future. Things are hotting up.

Maybe not at the beach - but in YAM's head for sure!


  1. You're sure making this hard for us to decide! Until the next tidbit drops...

  2. It sure looks cool and a bit dreamy a nice place to live.

  3. Hi Yamini. Hope you are fine. Wish to talk to you. Bari.

  4. I've got everything crossed for you! And I know you are going to be successful!

    Love the black/white photo at the top. Soooo beautiful.

  5. All very watery and atmospheric.
    Bute or Dunoon - oh the suspense!
    Cheers, Gail.

  6. Hari OM
    Joanne - oh if only I COULD share the decision!!
