Tanka: Precious Places

two whippets in winter jackets walking across wet sands on the loch shore
a blue and white whippet in a winter jacket sniffing washed up driftwood

slowing down
the smell of driftwood
ignites a fire
anchoring the memories
a special place we love

These photographs were taken on the shores of Loch Laggan in February 2020 before the current travel restrictions were in place.

You can see more images from this walk in our February posts Wings of Snow, Still Mind, Big World and Love at First Sight.

Wishing you a beautiful rest of the week and may you all stay safe and well,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
