beautful photos and very nice to see this area.

its certainly on point for social distancing.

^ bonus points for whoever gets that - ha.

Thanks for the comments
The "Pizza" was my 14 year old sons, who is a garbage disposal unit
Forgot to mention that The village of Tong on the island of Lewis was the birth place of Donald Trumps mother
Not that it's commemorated in any way even on Tongs Wikipedia page under notable people she's second on the list.
