Hello and welcome to my moblog. Here are lots of random images from my life at home on the Isle of Lewis and out and about.

The photos are mostly taken with my iPhone 3GS, but I'll also be posting some from my Nikon D80.

You can see more of my photography at my website 58 North Photography.

Bike advice needed

(viewed 920 times)
With the impending move to Lewis, I thought it would be a good point to get fit and get out and about more. As I know there are lots of cyclists here on moblog, I was hoping it's a a good place to start getting some advice on bikes. But I have no idea where to start. I want to spend around £200, it will mostly be used for driving on (not always very well maintained) roads, but with a bit of off road too, on grass or the beach. Would also use for going to the shop and even nipping off for a weekends camping, so place to put stuff would be nice.

I quite like the look of the Dawes ones, there are a few on their website that sound good, but have no idea if I'm looking at the right thing. Should I have front suspension or does it not matter for what I'll be doing? Should I get mud guards? What about other accessories?

And don't worry, I will go to a shop and try them out before I buy anything, but initial advice much appreciated.

This weekend #3

(viewed 634 times)
This afternoon the sun started to shine, so had a long drive round. The beach is at Uig, about 30 minutes drive from what will hopefully be home.

This weekend #2

(viewed 614 times)
Today we had a second viewing on a house we really like in the village of Ranish and decided that it's the one. Just need to get a survey and then we'll put an offer in and hope it's accepted. There are lovely views from the house and it's lovely inside, the garden needs tidying up but that's about all.

The view from the hotel room. Had a drive round today to get my bearings and have an initial look at some of the houses. The sun even came out for a while!

Off for a weekend in my future home. Flights from Manchester to Glasgow then Glasgow to Stornoway. Hope the weather is better up there, but I doubt it!

Moving date

(viewed 603 times)
I now have a date when my new job starts in Stornoway - 6th August. Which is soon. Luckily we have a buyer for our house - my Mum! She has also just accepted an offer on her house, so things are moving along very quickly. We are going for a long weekend from Friday 6th July, to look at houses and hopefully put an offer in on something. Very excited now, but lots to plan.

Pictures taken in the back garden this evening - the first sunshine for a while.
