Van Life Log

Wednesday 19th Oct 2016, 8:50pm
Location: Poolewe, Highland
Temp, high 14°, low 7°

Loch Maree

Lying in bed, having an early night after another day at work. Afterward walked Rio on the shore of Loch Maree, shown in the picture above. The autumn colours are now turning golden with bracken, leaves and grasses all sharing a harmony of shades.

There hasn't yet been a frosty night, but now that my diesel heater is working again, I have the thermostat set to start it up if the temperature drops too much inside the van. It's great getting up to a cosy warm heat on these colder mornings.

Location: Dundonnell, Highland
Temp, presently 9°, low 8°

We spent the night at the viewpoint here with an excellent view this morning of the Summer Isles to the west and the looming summits of An Teallach to the east, rising above Little Loch Broom. I'm having coffee while Rio chews happily on his dog toy. Silence all around except for an occasional breeze.
