Okay, I’m not quite back. I’m on the ferry from Coll to Oban (the picture is actually taken on the trip from Oban to Coll – the weather now is not that great). We’ve spent a week doing what I think is called glamping. We had something called a stormpod which had beds, a small kitchen, and a toilet and shower, and then we pitched a tent for all the kids. We spent the week biking, walking, playing on the beach, and doing some fishing. I didn’t catch anything, but I did see some grey seals and an otter. The friend I was with, however, was in the winning team for the annual Coll fishing competition, so we had more mackerel than we knew what to do with.
Last week I was at a meeting in a small village in South Tyrol. It was very interesting, and I had a thought for a post that I may eventually write. I was also quite pleased with how my talk went, which is not always the case. Managed to spend a night in Venice, which was fascinating, but very hot. Spent some of the following morning seeing some of Venice, and a couple of the museums, before heading home and leaving the next day for our week on Coll. I am looking forward to spending some time at home.
I notice that as far as climate communication is concerned, normal service has resumed, so maybe I’ll write a post about that. Might not be much point, but this is only a blog. Anyway, I’m going to spend some time looking at the scenery and deciding if I should go outside and stand in the rain.
