We are blessed with an exceptional spell of glorious weather. With blue skies and a light breeze we headed to Ardnave today to enjoy the stunning nature and relax on the many beaches and dunes. Over the course of the entire day we have seen pretty much every rock, dune and beach on Ardnave as we walked all over the place. We had our lunch on one of the high dunes at Ardnave Point, basking in sunshine, while Skylarks and the gentle sound of the waves provided the perfect musical background. BLISS! On days like this Islay is paradise and while the island is quite busy at the moment we have only seen four people during the entire walk. Nice sightings were a Peacock Butterfly, dozens of seals on Nave Island and a group of 10 Chough over the dunes.
A couple of years ago I would never have dared to post pictures on my Islay Gallery website or Islay Info website taken with a smartphone. The quality of the cameras inside the smartphones back then was rather poor. Nowadays cameras inside smartphones are of a much better quality and this results in more and more smartphones replacing the small point and shoot cameras.
