Somewhere in the Kingdom (Pt 2)

The Mrs as we approach Port Askaig, Islay.
Part One of this series.

One of the locals.

Islay’s worth more than the three days we had there.

Looks like I’m driving, eh? 

The local harvest …
Black Gold, but not Texas Tea:  Islay Peat.

Out by the Lagavulin Distillery — seals.

Smugglers Bay …

Back in the day, a way around the Revenuers.

Nah … didn’t drive in the UK (but prolly coulda on Islay).

More info … here.

Graves of warriors …

(Not my arm.)

A couple of English-German heritage.

Yes.  We saw sheep.

Looking out from the Lagavulin Distellery …

You get a view of Dunyvaig Castle

Our driver took us by the largest home on Islay (back, older) …

… the front (newer); now owned by a Texan.

The “Round Church” of Bowmore.

Highway’s a lot different than Houston …

Islay traffic.

While there, one may as well support the local economy …

Sláinte!
