Me and Nessie
It was another glorious day, around 17 degrees. I didn't realize that the daylight hours are extended here, I think it was only dark for about three hours last night. Good thing the curtains blocked the sunlight; I understand it was shining brightly at 4 in the morning.

Anyways, today we traveled through the lochs and glens of the Scottish Highlands to the Isle of Skye. I even saw the loch ness monster today and I had my picture taken with her. We visited the Clan Donald Centre, this is an excellent place to discover the history of the kingdom of the Isles and trace your genealogy. They also have spectacular gardens and today there was a local craftsmen show.

A lot of driving and scenery today but far from boring, our travel director, Rachel is such a wealth of knowledge about the history,culture and current information on the areas we have visited. I wish I could have taped everything she has told us, it wouldn't have been near as enjoyable without her commentary.

Tomorrow we are heading to Edinburgh for two nights.....until then
