Stained glass

Marion, my neighbor and landlady in Invergordon, makes mosaics and stained glass.  I admired the mirror in our house and found that she made it.

I am a retired archaeologist and I like to travel, especially to places where you can walk along the shore or watch birds. My husband Jonathan and I travel for more than half the year every year, seeing all the places that we haven't gotten to yet.
