Isle of Skye - The Tourist Way


  When Charlie and I travel we rarely do the proper "Tourist Activities", but with a lack of transportation we were inspired to experience the Isle of Skye by the fullest effect of the tourist industry. Don't get me wrong we are tourists everywhere we go but this time we decided to do a small group tour through Happy Tours Scotland called the "Isle of Skye Full-Day Tour from Inverness". John, our tour guide, was amazing! He was hilarious and knew the history of the area inside and out. He had such a confidence in his lecture, that at one point a tour guide from a different company came up to him to ask about the site we were at. Nothing better than to be shown about by a man in a kilt who was so proud of the area in which he was from.
  The First place we stopped on our day trip was the Eileen Donna Castle. The Castle sits just off the rocky shore and peering upon her feels like being taken back to the times of Scottish warriors. Although her brick facade was epic we were informed that the inside was remodeled and looked like the 1920's so to not waste the money to go in as nothing inside was in its original state. Charlie and I instead sipped cappuccinos while a woman mastered her spinning wheel with the castle in the background.

  We next made our way to the largest town on Skye called Portree where we had some lunch. This being a port city we naturally had some crab and locks sandwiches and explored the colorfully quaint town till we moved the journey along to the Quiraign which is part of the Trotternish ridge. John went on and on about the landscape in this area so I was on pins and needles to see what all the hype was about. Words cannot do this natural site of perfection justice, so here are a couple of photos and if you really want to see its majesty I suggest you add it to your bucket list!



  We went on to see the Kilt Rock (a rock formation that appears to be a Kilt), the Loch Ness Monster (well maybe just the loch but I tried my hardest to see the monster),  the Old Man of Storr, the Urquhart Castle and lastly the most epic view of all Morag the highland cow!! I had wanted to see one of these creatures since we started looking at going to Scotland and the moment was so much more exciting than I anticipated. Morag was beautiful and her baby made me giggle like a child. I came out of this experience with a whole new perspective and I can honestly say the money was worth all the added experience one gets from a guided tour!!

Monkeying around in the snow

After watching Flat Out Friday live streaming last night, I think I was inspired to get outside and ride.  I carved a track in the backyard with my snowthrower, put my studded tire on the Evil Monkey, and had a blast.  My daughter took the riding photos.

Mama Tried 2018 - Part 8

The Mama Tried Motorcycle Show isn't just a bike show, it's a full weekend experience.  When you consider the show itself, Flat Out Friday, a visit to the Harley-Davidson Museum, multiple concerts, and ice riding on Slippery Sunday (weather permitting... and it did not cooperate last year), you really can't ask for more.  I'm bummed I'm missing it this year but I hope everyone that attends has a blast.  The last few years will be hard to beat, but the show seems to get better every year.  Have fun everyone!  I'll leave you with some photos of One (Metallica tribute) and Weedeater at last year's show.

These guys were so good.

Pushin' and shovin' in the pit (Rave security was not amused):

Weedeater was fun to photograph.  The facial expressions are fantastic.

Bottle's empty?  Show's over.

Have fun at Mama Tried this weekend!!!
