A view of my travels to other places with no great plan.

Beginning in Barra
I am up at 4 as the geese got friendly and they are quite noisy. Tide is in and need to find a new way to the road. Ferry goes to Oban at 7. Bike shop opens at ten. Shop for food and look for a new solar panel. No solar panel to be found. Bike shop does not have my tyres yet at 10. They did order a second set of tyres and that is not my problem. Run into another cyclist that I meet far to the south. Show her a unmarked bike trail towards Fort Willy. Another trip to the bike shop and find they have my new rubber for my bike. I grab a pizza and head for the ferry. Five hours and I am at the Outer Heberties. I hope my order of a new solar panel goes through. Credit card was not happy with where I was sending it and wifi then started not working. Also can’t order a power bank as the lithium batteries. Barra Island is lined with second homes so I ride on. I finally find a trail in the center of the island to camp.
Love and kisses
