Title: Memories
Post by: Jenny Peers on July 02, 2003, 10:53:48 AM
I have just returned to Australia after a trip to London and France and a flying visit to Mallaig in June 2003. I was fortunate to spend about two years in Mallaig during '85 and '86 and discovered the friendliest people and the most beautiful surroundings. Those things drew me back for a whirlwind trip which saw me travel for a day each way to get there and back, and then one day in Mallaig rekindling old friendships. To say the trip was eventful is an understatement. I slept through the changeover of trains at Edinburgh and ended up in Aberdeen! The train broke down on the way back and we sat in a siding most of the night! I lost my coat on the way and that was a major disaster (the weather is not very kind up there in the Highlands). Anyway, to spend 24 hours in Mallaig was a brilliant experience and to revisit and see all the changes over the years, has been fantastic. Mallaig will always be very special to me and the friends I have made, will always be close. Jenny Peers
