December 10th Winter Wonderland

Woke up this morning to a winter wonderland outside, the snow was fairly thick and went right down to the waterside which is unusual here.

So although we managed to get the new lean-to finished the other day we now have the issue of the heavy snow covering the roof and stretching the plastic so the morning starts with clearing this. I am a little short to use my hands, like James does, to hit the plastic from the inside and so I covered a broom with some carpet underlay and pushed that up against the roof. Proper workout! I was exhausted after that.

I was desperate to get out and take some photos of the village covered in snow so I headed off to get my camera and start shooting while the sun was still hidden behind the mountains. It was magical, the peaceful little village of Plockton on a quiet Sunday morning.

Back at Rudha Mor I brought in some wood  then headed off around the path to check all was ok and to take some more photos. There were already several different prints on the path in the snow but I didn’t pass a soul as I walked around.

Back in the house and time to start a bit of decorating to get us all in the Christmas spirit!
