Turning into a Highlander Pt.2

The famous pier of Portree, my new hometown, at sunset (see the blue house, Lies?). Just to give you an idea of the kind of scenery you get here even when you just go walk the dog for ten minutes (although walking for only ten minutes is hardly possible when the walking is so good!).
Day after tomorrow I will leave the island again, however. That is to return to the job I temporarily have in the area of Dunoon, near Glasgow: planting trees! I hope to be able to write a bit more about the job, possibly even an article about what tree planting is and does. Internet will remain a rarity for a bit longer, I fear, so updates will be irregular and rare too.
Just for the friends I left behind in the Netherlands, and those in other parts of the world that I can hardly keep in touch with during these weeks/months, I miss you all very much! Keep in mind that we have a spare bedroom and a study where you could sleep if you'd ever feel like visiting this beautiful island! It is a strange feeling to know that you have made a good decision with such a big move; a migration away from home and those you know, but at the same time feel the loss of especially those friends and some even closer to the heart than that...
Ach, it's a shame that there is no time to write more, or write better. Time's up in the library where I can work on the internet for 30 - 60 minutes per session, and I have to go back home to finish my tax declaration (oh yugh!!).
Until next time!!

Hey I know Portree! I've been there a few years ago. Good to see you live surrounded by such a great scenery.

Elger, great to hear from you! Yep, it's not a bad place, but in November it will get even better: a move to Camas Luinie, a tiny village (8 houses only) in a somewhat forested valley, is coming up. It's not too far from Skye, so will be able to still keep in touch with friends there fortunately!

How are you doing?
