Carmi's Thematic Challenge this week is GLASS
This is the view across our road seen through a beautiful glass ball we found many years ago.
It is a float that the fishermen attached to their nets so that they would find them later. it had been washed up on a lonely beach in the Isle of Skye, off Scotland's west coast. Miraculously, it hadn't broken, and despite the fact we were camping we managed to get it home in one piece. It has since survived three moves, and sits where the light can shine through it in my office, reminding me of the very beautiful Isle of Skye.
Unfortunately we didn't see very much of the island, as after the first day, when we explored some lonely beaches and found the glass ball, the weather turned foggy, and we could hardly see in front of the tent!
We abandoned our plans to go to the Outer Hebrides, and once we got back to the mainland the weather was beautiful, hot and sunny!
That's Scotland for you! One day I am going to get back to the Islands. I'm determined!
