Finally beside the front door and looking away from the water there is a handy bench that catches the morning sun and guess what I used it for.

Outside the house
I didn't realise I had take quite so many photographs outside as well inside, so today I'll show you the immediate environs of our weekend home and you can see where else we went another day.The house is surrounded on three sides by decking, this side and of course the front look out to sea, the other side onto the rocks beside which the house was built. This is the little bay below the house, easily accessible by scrambling over the rocks. The islands on the horizon are Rhum the peaky one with the cloud above it, Eigg the flatter island in front of Rhum and Muck to the left. They are more obvious on this picture, if you look carefully you can see Mr FF on the highest rock doing his mermaid impersonation. Neither of us realised till we'd been there a couple of days that the loch is tidal and completely cuts off this rock, I'm sure he would have swum back for his dinner. On a clear day such as this you can see the Cuillins on the Isle of Skye, the jagged ridge to the left. All these photographs were taken from the terrace so you get an idea of the wonderful panorama.
