We took ourselves to Raasay in February.
A proper road trip – a long time in the car, sweets, music, stops for the dog to wee, chats about memories. Maniacs in white vans, eye-spy and the name game.
Does it all sound perfect?
It wasn’t. We fought, too. There were hideous tensions as well as laughs and Kodak moments. Families trying to keep growing together at the same time as letting kids grow up are like that, I reckon. The wood of the construction makes different noises in different weather.
Roots and wings.
