I am on holiday on the picturesque Isle of Eigg in the Scottish Small Islands. We have seen dolphins and eagles and as I type the sun is shining. Yesterday we walked around the headland from Laig beach where we are staying to The Singing Sands cove. My daughter, aged 7, was amazing at scrambling over the rocks and identifying which rocks would be slippery and which would be safe. All the while during this, at times treacherous walk, I was taking photographs of my small ceramic boats on the rocks, in rock pools, among seaweed for my Shipping forecast Project which is a book I am creating for my University degrees final major project.
