... climes. As I boarded the 1600 flight to Edinburgh a cold wind bit into my hatless head. From the plane I saw the highest peaks in the Cairngorms are now snow covered.

I'm familiarising myself with travel pod. I think I've just uploaded a photo. Ha ...

... air was a delight, with the pure northerly breeze blowing in our faces. The sea was a gorgeous deep blue and where it broke over the rocks, it became a wonderful turquoise colour. The air was full of birds, fulmars, great skuas, puffins, guillemots to name a few. The great skuas, or bonxies, defend their nests by diving on you and it is really intimidating.
