There's the ferry ride <- note, link leads to a 3D picture, you can drag it with your mouse and look around.

(I have not been on a ferry for quite a long time, but I am assured that you must not PAY the ferryman, until he gets you to the other side. Apparently you are not even to fix a price, which seems strange to me.)

Wow, is right! Think of the acoustics in the main room. :thumb:
I guess we'll have to come help you move. :D

Big change! Both are nice houses. In the new place you'll be in a more traditional neighborhood. How do you feel about leaving the Arran community? I bet you won't miss that ferry.

Is there a place on the mainland for your car and Fanny, or is that extra?

Thanks guys!
@UT - you pay the ferryman on the return journey back to what passes for the mainland. It is, in fact, another Island called Seil which is reached from the mainland by the Bridge over the Atlantic (I kid you not:
@Glatt - a strong sense of community on Arran is what I miss, it has eroded quite abruptly and pretty recently. There is more about the community on Easdale here:
@ fargon - there is a place for the car and Fanny just across the water. In the longer term we will probably look to swapping them for a campervan.

Now, the most important question: how's the internet connection?

limey 12-08-2018 01:25 PM

Internet and cellphone connectivity are both good enough. Better than many parts of Arran.
And UT, I like the kitchen the way it is [emoji846]

It's fair, it's very bright though! :) Kinda contrasty to the natural settings surrounding it; the blue sea, green island, slate hill. Maybe that's why they chose it.

I even like the very unfashionable coloured bathroom suite. Partly because it will have put people off buying as they will have thought they have to change it [emoji1]

We can never know about the days to come
But we think about them anyway
And I wonder if I'm really with you now
Or just chasin' after some finer day

Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin' me late
Is keepin' me waitin'

I woke up this morning after a very odd and somewhat disturbing dream.

Now, first of all, I don't dream much. Or, if I do dream, I almost never remember them. Secondly, as much as I miss my folks, I don't recall having any dreams about them since they passed away. I've certainly never dreamed about my niece.

So here's what happened:

In my dream, I had just crawled into bed for the night. My niece comes into the room, walks over to a chair in which a huge teddy bear is sitting (I have no huge teddy bears) and hugs it, then leaves.

Next, my mother enters and says something to me, but it's all garbled and I don't understand what she's saying. She leaves and then my father enters. Says he's looking for something (don't recall what it was) and I suggest it might be in his computer. He says, "Yes, I have to go to the office to check that." He leaves the room, goes outside, gets in a car and drives away. End of dream.

I woke up this morning with an uneasy feeling about that dream. Called my brother and sis-in-law this evening; they told me that my niece was diagnosed with vulvar cancer, yesterday.

:eek3: :sniff:
