So I decided that I wanted to go outside of Skye for a few hours or so and a friend, Elaine, happened to be going to Inverness today!! So, after getting in from the music pub last night at 1am, I contemplated on going and decided to go .. so I woke up at 7am and was ready by half 7 to explore!!! After 2 hours of driving we arrived. She and her friend went shopping and I went to the castle.
I must admit I was pretty dissapointed in the castle.. much more modern looking .. not cool to me, oh well.. so I went and walked along River Ness :) I walked all the way down and it's such a lovely walk, massive trees everywhere (reminded me of the redwoods a bit), little islands you can walk along with artsy benches facing the rushing, deep blue, sparkling and lights strung on light poles. I wish I could have seen it at night..

I ended up walking to a kids playground, of course. And I decided to play! So I went on these unique play things.. one was all ropes that you could climb up to the top it was in the shape of a circus tent and just loads of redish ropes all attached to each other .. really fun!!! they had a tire type swing except.. it was more squishy and meshy and you could just sit in it while you went around and round!! That looked really fun.. then they had paddle boats!!!! This was all in a lush green park, so beautiful.

I ended up finding a nice bench along the river and read a little and wrote a little. My intention was to clear my mind and I read something in the book I was reading about Waking up to life.. to who I am, and to remember who I am. This empowered me to write who I really am.. and this is what came out:

I am a being that is overflowing with Love. I am creative and I spread Joy as it seeps through my pores. I am passionate and am connected to my inner child and know that  I am here to help adults understand these little people who radiate the Truth. I am Truth and I follow my heart and allow myself to experience what my heart wants to do. I make soul connections with people and I breathe deep. I smell the ocean and I hear the 'I love you's' being said across the world in a single smile, a single glance. I feel the wind touching, caressing my face and the softness of a horses fur as it sets off, free to roam the countryside. I hear the birds sing their song, they never stop.I taste the joy in the air and the rain as it falls softely, cleansing me of any false belief. In the stillness, I rejuvenate. I am awake. I am whole. this is who i am. this is who you are too. we are one. let our souls collide.

That's what came to me.. and I felt so at peace and happy and I started to look everyone in the eye and I saw them as who they are, which is love. :)

So, then we came back listening to MJ (so awesome) and dancing along.. and then drove by Loch Ness ( where the monster supposedly hides!!!) and during the drive the water was so still that the mountains with snowtops was completely mirrored in the water and it was just so beautiful!!!!  I have pictures.. dont know when they will get up.. well see if I have enough time.

Then we had a nice dinner thanks to Fergus (omlette with roast beef in it and really yummy potatoes) then we went to Elaine's caravan that she remodeled and had a chat with some delicious wine, and went to a pub and met some new friends..

I'm leaving tomorrow with Rachel to Stirling!!!! :) and we are taking the Harry Potter train there!!! AHHHHH SO AWESOME!!! from mallaig (you can look it up.. the one with the bridge and the steam train)
