Back at sea level

We faced another wet day as we started our week-long trek towards Inverness along the Great Glen Way.

We said good-bye to Fort William Sunday morning as we continued on our trek through Scotland. We also said good-bye to some familiar faces. We've (proudly) been keeping pace with a group of college kids for the last few days. Sometimes passing them on the trail, but more often getting passed up by the foursome. Yesterday, they reached Fort William just before us and are now heading their separate ways.

A chance meeting at breakfast Sunday reunited us with Heather, our roommate from several days ago. She also has ongoing European travel plans before heading back to school for a graduate degree. It's exciting to hear what these young people are doing…things that we never would have considered when in our twenties. All are really nice kids who didn't seem to mind talking with us old folks!

So we wished them all well and set off on the next leg of our adventure, The Great Glen Way, along the Caledonian Canal towards Inverness. The waterway creates a shortcut for vessels, linking the east and west coasts of Scotland. Today we saw a parade of fishing vessels cruising through, as well as several pleasure boats. The rain eventually tapered off as we enjoyed a change of scenery and a very flat pathway.
