Welcome to my blog. Thanks for dropping by. Hope you'll stay and enjoy reading about where I've been and what I've been doing!

I don't mean this to be a replacement for personal emails, but it gives me the chance to put up photos and my scrapbook layouts, so I don't block up your in-boxes, or have to send the same photos and stories to everyone separately!
Thanks, and welcome, to the followers of my blog. I'm very honoured that you enjoy it. Drop me some comments from time to time! It's good to hear what you think about the posts. Come back again soon.

Thanks also to Mary of Mary's Mixes for doing all the work on the blog's heading. You are great, Mary!

Barra Airport

Here's another piece of film for you, again found on my Yahoo page. It's a film showing one of "the world's scariest airports" as the plane arrives at and later taxis and takes off from An tràigh Mhòr on the island of Barra, in the Western Isles of Scotland. An tràigh mhòr is Gaelic for the big beach, and indeed the plane does land and take off here, as you will see. I think it is one of the world's most beautiful airports. Before the plane arrives, just listen to the skylarks singing. Sublime! It was here, as a small child, that I had my very first contact with an aeroplane! Oh, I'd been to Edinburgh airport dozens of times but I had never been on a plane. However, on holiday there with mother and dad, I was allowed to carry a bag on to the wee plane for someone we had met while staying there. My first time on a plane - even if I wasn't flying! You couldn't get to do that nowadays!
Anyway see it for yourself now - Barra airport....

Talk again soon.
