2nd April Scooter Ride to Mellon Udrigle

Julia & Philip suggested we visit a place called Mellon Udrigle if we wanted to see a beautiful beach around here.  Well, they were certainly telling the truth!  The journey out there took us around the other side of Loch Ewe where we saw further remains of the Loch Ewe naval defences relating to WW2.

We took lots of pictures so the journey out there took us a lot longer than it should have done, but we reckon we could get to the beach within 30 minutes on our days off.

There is a car park nearby with a wooden platform taking you round the corner to the beach…

People talk about the beaches around Scotland being as stunning as the Carribean and we think they may well be right!  We did see some beaches last year we were up here but the views here out to sea were absolutely amazing!

The sound of the waves crashing on the beach was better than any chill out CD you can buy.  We had a coffee while admiring the view then set off back to the campsite…after one final picture!

Big kid!

To top a wonderful day off we were then treated to a fantastic sunset over Loch Ewe.  Throughout the season they are supposed to be even more magical.

About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
