Oban



Ok. So you want to see all the wonderful photographs I took for the blogspot while I was away for a few days in Oban. See above. Yes folks, I'm afraid that's the extent of it. Oban was wet, wet, wet. But then, so was the rest of the country. I must admit though that Oban was not as windy as I had expected. But we decided to cancel our trip down to Glasgow on Sunday because apparently down there the weather really was pretty rough.


So what did we do. Well here's a clue: I had two women with me and it's nearly Christmas.

Well done! Yes, we shopped. And then after that we shopped. And then we shopped a little more.


I must admit, I like a wee bit of the shopping myself, so don't be fooled.


The prize discovery of this trip was the board games Joanne and I played when we were younger. We bagged 1930s and 1940s reproductions of Cluedo and Monopoly. It was great trying to remember the rules in the flat in Oban. We had a great time.


Oh, the innocent days of our youth!


I suppose the highlight entertainment-wise was the new James Bond movie, Casino Royale. I had been looking forward to seeing this and I was not disappointed. There great action and the new Bond looked super cool and even a little dangerous, something that's been missing since dear old Sean was in the part.


But I must admit I don't enjoy going to the cinema like I used to. I don't know if it's me or my eyesight but I much prefer to watch a good quality DVD.


I must tell you - I was in Argos in Oban and I stood transfixed by a plasma High Definition TV for ages. I have never seen a picture like that ever. More real than life, honest.


Anyway, we are back on the good old Isle of Tiree. But I'm a bit upset. My cat Connie is nowhere to be seen. When we came home this morning, the next door cat was sitting in our kitchen, in the very spot where Connie usually sits. I know cats come back when they're good and ready but the fact is that I'm very fond of Connie and I want her to come home now. Posted by Picasa
