Scotland 5: Day 48
04.17.16 | Stornoway Hotel | 08:19
I’m feeling great again- all systems are “go”. I joked yesterday about the day being “a day of reflection”. All joking aside, that is what today is going to be about. This doesn’t mean I’m going to stay indoors all day, but since it’s again Sunday, today needs to be different. I have decided not to attend the local Stornaway Branch for church because today is their stake conference, which is being broadcast from Aberdeen. The main reason I would be attending church would be to partake of the sacrament (communion). Since there won’t be a sacrament service today, I think I’m just going to keep the sabbath day holy in other ways.
The rainy weather seemed to have finished up for the morning and so I walked over to see Lews Castle. It was a nice little walk, and it felt good to stretch my legs for a bit, especially being cooped up here for most of the day yesterday. About the time I was finished, it started to rain again. I thought it was best to come back to the hotel and wait it out for a few minutes. Little did I know, it wasn’t going to let up anytime soon. I did manage to get a few good pictures on my walk, however. Such a cute little city!
