Kerrera, Sunday 7th June 2009: Part 1

Last Sunday, Jo and I were in Oban. We went over to Kerrera for a few hours. Kerrera is a small island right off the coast of Oban and it's a wee gem. We managed to get a 6 mile hike in. Today's here's a short video of the ferry crossing and tomorrow I'll post some photographs.

West End Players

IMG_0008-1

This is me as Sheriff‘s Officer Mr. U. R. Summond who featured in The Stranger, one of the plays performed on Saturday night at An Talla.

It was an evening of plays in Gaelic – except when it came to my part. I have a little Gaelic but not enough to perform confidently in front of an audience.

As well as plays by the performed by adults the kids from the school were also there and they did three plays of their own. I’m always amazed at how the kids on Tiree are not phased in the least by performing, whether it be a play or playing musical instruments.

The audience of about seventy seemed to really enjoy themselves even though there were a few technical hitches. The stage lights fused just as we we were about to perform The Stranger. What timing!
