3rd post - from Lunga  
Aaaand the big post LOL (at least picture wise)

The sea was a bit roughish when we set out, and I have to admit I was getting to the point where sea sickness was looming quite largely *swallows hard* - I hate that feeling - Nicci wasn't doing much better, but at least none of us ended up actually sick.

So the four of us made it over the bloody rocks to the land of the Puffins!

Lunga aka an abundance of puffins

Puffins, puffins and... more puffins )


full set from Lunga


We came back to the cabin, Gary and Saz had pizzas for us - and if I didn't love and adore them before, I did now *g* - That evening we sat around, just enjoying ourselves and it was damned brilliant.

Monday we did much of the same, this time Cats provided sustenance in the form of Risotto. And the day was fab - sure, it was piss pouring down outside, but we still had a fab time together.

On the Tuesday we pakced up, and of course, by the time we left, the sun came out XD

We all drove over to Callender, though we had a quick stop a Kilmahog - to finish shaking - a stupid van decided to overtake right around a sharp turn in the road, putting him in out lane just as he came around. It could have ended so badly, us with Saz in the car behind and great big Argos lorry behind her *whipes brow* - it still gives me the jitters.

After that little stop, we carried on into Callender to get a pub lunch, get Cats some potted meat from the butcher's and to take a picture of a hairdresser's by the name of 'scissor sister' which amused us to no end.

Stopping in Edinburgh, we had a bit of tea and coffee before all heading out - Saz and Gary southward, Nicci and I northbound. Yes, the evening's meal WAS takeaway - we were dead on our feet when we got to Dunfermline.

To Gary, Saz, Jen, Cats and Nicci... thank you so much for a fantastic weekend. With geekyness, adult nappies, food aplenty and so very good.

*raises glass*

2nd post - of the cabin getaway  
So, we spent the Friday night eating what [personal profile] nicci_mac cooked for us! She cooked!

Heh. It was planned that we'd have the curry Gary was bringing up with him and Saz, but the traffic had been true for a Friday the 13th - and they'd taken a lot longer than anyone had expected - so because mobiles make it possible to to plan ahead, we went and cooked the night's dinner - so they'd be fed when they came in the door. And it was a feast! (actually, we ate a lot and we ate well - the whole weekend through LOL)

We spent the Friday night eating, drinking and talking our hearts out - and playing computer games XD - and whatever else we could think of.

Saturday went much the same way, apart from us heading into Oban to go to Tesco's to pick up a few things. And figuring out where Jen, Cats, Nicci and I were getting on the Isle of Mull ferry the next morning - Saz and Gary opted out of that trip, but they were darlings extraordinaire because they made sure to have dinner on the Sunday when we came back. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

The Saturday, after our excursion into Oban, we had the curry - veggie curry, but who cares? OMG it was delicious! The Bombay potatoes as well - man, we ate like pigs! Om-nom.

Anywho, the Saturday night was just as delightful as the Friday - although we were all better rested LOL - We had fun, played more games, exchanged media - it's always fun when fannish ppl get together like that.

Pictures and a word of warning XD  
I'll be spammin mcspammerson tonight, just so you guys know it *g*

It's been a hectic week and a half, but I'm finally getting there, finally feeling a little more awake LOL

I'll be splitting the posts into three - one for the trip over to Taynuilt - where we stopped midways at Killin to enjoy lunch at the Falls of Dochart and the Airdeny Charlets where we stayed for the weekend, one for Staffa, one for Lunga and the trip back from the Isle of Mull.

I went over from Copenhagen on the 11th - and [personal profile] nicci_mac and I had the 12th to get stuff together for when we left on Friday the 13th - on the 13th we drove in from Dunfermlin to pick up [personal profile] catspaw and [profile] feather_autant. From there (after having coffee and tea) we set off westward (after playing tetris with luggage and car boot XD).

Midways we stopped at Killin to have lunch and watch the water rush by.

Day 1 - Dunfermline - Edinburgh - Killin - Taynuilt
