This is pure desktop vacation since I was not in Glasgow last weekend (Sis was and helped out) but have been enjoying the photos of the Harris Tweed Ride that took place. Have to rumble organizer Mike D (above), and commend the ladies esp' for killing it with old and new tweed ensembles (love her rough weskit below). Won't go on and on, just hope this happens again next year. If not, damn it looked fun.

This large set of pics below is by Carol Ann Peacock, and only reproduced here with her express permision. Do check her site, for her documenting of the mills, mill workers and weavers of the Outer Hebrides. Some of those shots will in turn be included in Weaving Songs, a book of poetry being released this autumn based on the working lives of the crofters and communities of the Western Isles of Scotland.

Tea cups and tablet' (like brittle fudge)

Still with me? Even more pics at the official site.
