We've lived near Oban for an entire year now.

Until this week.

::: The Seal Colony :::


 
There is a resident seal colony off the island of Kerrera, near Oban.

 
We took a small boat trip out to see them, it's not too far.

 


They had 6-8 week old pups and were awfully smelly!

::: Painting :::

 
I decided to paint the bathroom last week.


It changed from a light pinky colour to 'fresh linen'. 

It's so much brighter.

::: Tralee Bay :::


We found a little hermit crab living in a shell. 

 
It was wet, it was windy, we wore waterproofs and wellies.

We sat on benches dedicated to people who had passed away.

We splashed and got wet.

 
The views were amazing. We could see for miles.

::: Lamingtons :::

 
I made lamingtons yesterday!

 
What are lamingtons I hear you ask?

 
Lamingtons are an Australian desert and I have long drooled over friends photographs of them.

 
It's basically a sponge cake, dipped in a chocolate mix and coated in coconut.


The recipe I used can be found here.

::: Rock :::

 
I left for work yesterday morning, just driving down the farm road that leads to our home, when I spotted this little guy trying to look like a rock.
