Loch Etive

Why take photos yourself when your guests can do it much better?
I was delighted to be given permission to use this photo that was taken by Sander, one of our Dutch guests, last night, when we were treated to a spectacular sunset.  This is from Kelly's pier, taking in the whole panorama and drama of the sea.  I believe it's about 12 photos stitched together.

The weather has continued to be damp (some of you might call it wet), and all the rivers are bubbling again.  Most guests arrived today saying 'lovely to be more refreshed and be out of the heat wave'. However, a downpour at 4 pm just as everyone was arriving was maybe not the way to welcome visitors.

We've had some postcards made of Bonawe House, the picture that I put on the blog 2 months ago from Bonawe, and I've ordered some of Torr na Locha as well. These are now for sale in reception for 30 p each.  Lots of eggs are for sale this week too.  As I'm here by myself for the week, I've got lots spare.
Particularly at their current laying rate, I had 7 one day and 8 the next!  The 3 new chickens are due to arrive this Thursday.

Looking forward to the 'walking theatre' that are coming to Bonawe Iron Furnace on Tuesday this week. They cast are coming for a look around the house afterwards as well.  I saw them a few weeks ago and they were brilliant, they've got a number of dates at the Iron Furnace.  See their website on;

Hey Renate,

I'm sorry that i have to spoil the fun but you mixed up two photos i showed you, the photo you are talking about (the one with the 12 photos stitched together) is this photo http://www.flickr.com/photos/s1v1travels/4784467704/
And if you need my help with photos for the blog (for example, photos of the house) you can always knock on the door.
