Travel Thursday - Wrapping Up A Wonderful Three Weeks

Today our 3 week trip in Europe draws to a close. Thank you for coming on this journey with us.

On our last full day in the Bonny Land we hopped in the wren and headed toward a lighthouse (and forgive me for not remembering the name. I think this day is the only day I didn't take pictures of signs. I know Yamini will put the name in the comments!)

This lighthouse is now a residence, so you can't go in, but the light itself still works. We bet this is Rosy, Arty and Jakey's mom's dream home!

Someone had placed this on a fence post

Then we went to a reservoir. The Man and I enjoyed our walk through the forest surrounding it.

See the bird?

Then we headed back to Dunoon for a little tour. The Man had not really explored. While driving around we discovered the church near the castle museum (I believe it was the Dunoon High Kirk) was open. In all the time our hostess had lived in this town, she had never been in the church, so we happily explored it.

We are sure there is a better punch line to 2 atheists and a Hindu walk into a church, but for us, the answer was have tea! This lovely church offered tea (served with biscuits) for the price of a donation. We very much enjoyed this time. 

After our refreshments we ended our explorations in the cemetery. It seems our time in Scotland was bookended with cemeteries. 

We spent a lovely evening watching movies and chatting. The next morning we were up early to head to Glasgow to catch our flight home. 

We were very lucky to have had the opportunity to see new parts of the world this summer. We are forever grateful to our hostess Yamini and the opportunity to meet Bertie and Gail. 8 years ago when I started writing this blog, as a way to cope with the handful of a dog we had just rescued, I never would have imagined this would connect us with people all over the world and give us the opportunity to travel to meet them.  There is good in the internet! 

We have some travels lined up for 2019  and we look forward to sharing them with you.
