Last night's "ceilidh" was not what we expected. Rather than traditional Scottish/Gaelic tunes the band played covers of american pop and country tunes. We were not impressed but the locals seemed to love it. It was almost surreal to hear the Scots singing, at the top of their lungs, "Take me home country roads" and "I'm a rhinestone cowboy." Each to his own, I guess.
But today's visits were great !!!
We did more driving to visit some "must sees" which included Saligo Bay, and a monument near the beach at Sanaigmore. Before the drive though we walked down to Carraig Fhada lighthouse.
Tomorrow we leave Islay, by plane, for Glasgow then to Heathrow and home.
We've enjoyed our time here and the weather the past two days has been delightfully sunny; I even have a tan (or so I am told) !!!
When we are home we'll still post to this blog our thoughts after leaving and perhaps more detail about some of the sights and sites.
It's now about 9PM, and I need to double check the schedule for tomorrow, send a necessary email or two then pack to leave.
