According to the weather forecasters, today was due to be one of the hottest days of the year. I think I might have even read somewhere that it could be the hottest day in 10 years!
I tend not to pay much attention when I hear the media say such things though, as when they say that the UK is about to experience a heat wave, or whatever else they are talking about, what they actually mean is that the South of England is going to experience it.
It seems that it did turn out very hot down south, but the weather away up here wasn't too shabby either! It was, in fact a perfect summer day. Hot and sunny, with enough of a warm breeze to keep the big flies and the dreaded midgies away.
It was just the right sort of afternoon to spend at one of my favourite beaches - Traigh Mhòr (trai vore) which means Big Beach in Gaelic.
