A Scotland Island affair

is a warm touch of red amongst the trees

An al fresco lunch under dappled light
A repast symphony of Mediterranean olives ….
….chilled wines and minted water
Blushing mango cheeks …
Exotic salads boasting the colours of the rainbow ….
…. and bowls of luscious berries.
Locals drop in from time to time ….
just to add a little colour!
And at day’s end, it’s a quick trip back to the mainland.
A Scotland Island affair 

is always an affair to remember!
