Another lovely calm day. Bloody love it.
I’m sitting where right now.
Gulping in the sea air. (Sorry that made me laugh….. I’m reading a book just now where they gulp their hot tea to wash down their cake and it makes me chuckle….)
I’m gulping in the sea air to last me for the week until I can be here again on Saturday.
Saturday afternoon we sail to Arran.
For those locals amongst you… yes this is the ferry sailing back to Ardrossan so another bit of poetic licence. This is the Isle of Arran….
It’s so calming down here. The car park is fairly busy but every one seems to disappear somewhere when they are down here.
Unlike Largs. Where I have just come from. Largs is trying to rival Blackpool Pleasure Beach today.
Actually this particular photo doesn’t do it justice…. It looks empty! Each to their own and just not my cup of tea. Loud music…. All playing over each other…. Hundreds of people all crowded round… and I walked right through the middle of it. 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤣
I did manage to catch the back of the Waverley Paddle Steamer leaving Largs. Couldn’t get close enough to get a pic without the lady…… 😬🤣
So back to the present.
I’m perched out on the barnacle rocks… always forget to bring a wee cushion to sit on. These are awfy sharp barnacles.
Even though I’m writing this while I sit here I’m soaking up the surroundings. This is my calm place. I can literally see 6 people from where I’m sitting and they are nowhere near me. I was never this much of a loner before. I love the solitude now. (Craigs home watching football so he’s happy too!!)
There really is no sound other than the rippling of the tide… some crazy thing that just buzzed in my ear and the chattering in my head. 🤣
So the clearing out of photos….. I downloaded an app called Cleanup. I had 56,000+ photos between my phone and my iCloud account and I knew that I had the same photos saved loads of times too.
Cleanup costs £26.49 a year but actually it’s been amazing all day today. It’s been working away in the background and has got rid of about 9,000 photos so far. It’s still a work in progress so I’ll see how it ends up.
It’s currently going through the 39,000’s so still a way to go. It’s been at it all day…. Which is hardly surprising I suppose.
I just tried to move and I was literally stuck to the barnacles. The tide is coming in!
I managed to reverse very carefully u like the last time I was here…. I’m back home now and the sun is coming out. I knew it wanted to!!
So another Sunday evening reminder that you can handle everything life throws at you this week. Remember to breathe between the trigger and the response. I’m working at this…. still. 😬🤫🤣
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
