Blue sky thinking

Wonderful clear blue sky all day but with a slight chill in the air. Should be lots of stars to see tonight. Walked down to Farigaig pier on Loch Ness and soaked up the amazing views. Most of the snow has now gone from the mountain tops at lower levels and enjoyed the feeling that Spring is on its way.
