|We concluded our
Arran trip this month (see the travel blog for
details) and also went to Devon for another
postponed holiday. This one was booked in June
2019, postponed in June 2020 because of the
restrictions on travel and then finally we took
it this June! That meant that we had two weeks
away in three
we never expected to be
pressured by too many holidays too close together
and other unanticipated result of Covid.
It was a lovely week
investigating Mikes stone circle and how it
would indicate the solstice which in the event
was not seen because of rain and low cloud. (We
have booked again for 2022.) More AirBnB
this time in a wonderful little cottage in the
middle of Beer right next to the church and two
minutes from the mainstreet
down a very, very steep hill.
Going down to the village was easy getting
back up was much more of a challenge and we found
a different route. More in the travel blog.
Hannah moved out an into her new flat which
isnt very far away from here and we set
about converting her old flat here into a guest
we might dip our toes into the
AirBnB hosting lark ourselves.
Tara had a
wonderful time on Arran and then again in Beer.
She found the sea interesting in both
places. She very nearly managed to catch a
seagull in mid flight when one came too close for
our comfort and, in the event, its safety. We
dont think shed have known what to do
about it if shed caught it , but it was a
close run thing for the seagull and I suspect
Tara would have won.
