Hey everyone! I had the best weekend ever! We left last Thursday and headed up to the Scottish Highlands and then to the Isle of Skye! We saw the most beautiful landscape I have ever seen in my life. I was just in complete awe and wonder at God's amazing creation the whole weekend. Ever time I thought that it coudn't get any prettier, it did. Not only that, but all of our prayers for good weather paid off. We had blue skies and sun the whole weekend and not a drop of rain. Apparently this is very very rare for this time of year in the region we were in. I am just so thankful that we were able to experience such a beautiful place in this world with such beautiful weather.
We started our journey on a steam train, then got onto a ferry, and then we rode in a bus the rest of the weekend! Every time that I tried to take a picture in the Highlands, I just got mad. I coudn't capture the beauty and power of the landscape. I did get pictures, but they just dont even compare to what I really got to see. There are no trees really in the Highlands or on the Isle. There is something in the air that prevents them from growing really. Only a few types can really grow, and there aren't many of them. This is what our tour guide told us at least! This makes the Highlands look like giant rolling hills. But that isn't even a good description. They are massive, they are rolling, but they are the most powerful looking mountain/hills imaginable. They are just as tall as mountains and just towering over you on all sides. I can't give a good enough description so I'll just quit trying. It is frustrating me! Haha
