Mummy, Can We Please Go On That Boat?
…and so the next weekend we found ourselves (Teagan (4), Summer (1) and myself) onboard the Calmac ferry heading to Colonsay. A few heads were turned as I pushed my bike with the two girls in the trailer and on the kid’s seat and all our kit in the panniers on board the ferry.
The girls soon made friends with other children onboard and time quickly passed by with the help from a bouncy ball and before we knew it we had arrived.
Biking is an ideal way to get around the island as the roads are quiet and there are plenty of interesting places to stop and play at. We were staying at the backpackers’ hostel so we headed off over the hill with amazing views looking across the island and sea.
My girls love the beach so Kiloran Bay, a beautiful, sandy beach was our destination for the weekend. It doesn’t matter that it’s not the middle of summer and that it might rain. Togged up in wellies and waterproofs, bucket and spade in hand and the kite we happily spend hours digging holes, playing in the water and flying the kite.
Biking back to the ferry on the Sunday evening there were smiles all around as the girls and I had all had a fantastic time exploring Colonsay.
