Making the most of our time on the Isle of Mull

Making the most of our time on the Isle of Mull

Animalcouriers left on the ferry with Francesca’s 10 cats, who were safely delivered to their new home on the Isle of Mull, where they immediately set about exploring their new surroundings. We were rather jealous of their new scenic view!

    Wonderful photos, especially the Abandoned fishing boats (or is that a painting?).

      The light was rather poor and most of the photos have that distressed look!

    What a lovley lady to have brought all the rescues from straydom to Mull Isle. And such a beautuful place. Hard to imagine all the beauty of the British Isles. The cats all made lucky choices when they picked this lady’s house. I love to read about these kind hearted individulals. They are people with whom I totally agree. πŸ™‚

      Yes, think you would even cope with being away from ‘your beach’ for a while πŸ˜‰

    Lucky feline’s for sure. Their new home is postcard perfect. What a super nice gal to open her heart and home to these lovely souls. I’m so happy for it. Is Mull as remote as it looks on your last view back? I sure admire the stone fencing surrounding the garden, really pretty with all the moss softening the beautiful view.

      What an adventure they signed on for when they moved in with Francesca! It is the most beautiful place.

    Of course I’m drawn by the promise of ten lucky cats. But the non-cat photos are lovely. What a view for the fabulous felines.

    Loved the photos. Abandoned boats, colorful houses, ancient castles, and rock fences always attract the photographer in me. –Curt

      Shame the light wasn’t better but then it did give a certain ambience.
