Thursday August 21st

Got a cab to Paddington, the fast train to Heathrow, a belated nearly bus-like plane to Edinburgh, the smaller plane to Wick, a cab to the lighthouse, and here we are. It's lovely here. Immediately I felt happy. Wind, lots of sky, a lighthouse, sheep, ponies, a lovely big house to ramble in. Got a bit settled in, then got a taxi to Wick, where I bought an ordnance survey map, few Scottish books for research, then we bought some bakery goods at the bakery, bacon and a meat pie at the butchers, Christina and Matt bought heavy boots at the fishing/sporting goods store, and then we visited the tourist board office and got some postcards and collected brochures, then bought a bounty of groceries whereupon I got tired and stupid. Then we took a taxi back here. I sat then and was useless for a while, but enjoyed the lovely skies, especially as the sun set.
