…We had counted on leaving the ferry by six,
and being off the Isle of Skye,
We were late off the ferry
and did not cross back onto the mainland
Besides which, having to be somewhere
at a certain time tends to go against the grain
when holidaying, that is work stuff!
Normally we have a nebulous plan
which leaves lots of room
for unscheduled stops
when the landscape calls.
That particular luxury had been withdrawn.
Even though we had only been on the isles
for a couple of days
there was also a lingering notion
that the sun would not set
leaving us enough light to drive through the night.
