The good life

As ever I feel incredibly lucky to live my life as I do and the last few weeks have been fantastic even with the mixed weather.  A gamble and a long drive to Ardnamurchan paid off with an amazing few days climbing with Adrian and Hannah a couple of weeks ago and lots of time hanging out in beautiful places have made it easy to find photos for this post...
 Adrian on perfect Gniess in perfect weather on the ring crags of Ardnamurchan (the route is Yir VS 4c on Meall an Fhir Eion)
 Hannah padding up the classic HS Leac Glas (i think) on the apron slabs
 Me taking a breather after the hard part of "minky" E2 5b
 Adrian and Hannah sorting gear halfway up the Apron Slabs
 Dolphin playing in the sound of Luing
 More dolphins
 More dolphins being followed by Iona in Goldeneye
 Dolphins showing off
 Ailsa and Stu storming through the corryvrechan to drop me off on the North end of Jura for another expedition
Theres a climber in there somewhere.  Meall an Fhir Eion
