A Test Drive In More Ways Than One - Part Two

The test drive of TAF with a captive audience of family members didn't go according to plan. In fact, it didn't go to any plan. It didn't happen at all.

My mother-in-law tested positive with COVID-19 on Monday. We'd already spent Saturday and Sunday in her company. It wasn't long before we all fell like flies. My wife, myself, my sister-in-law, brother-in-law, their son, etc. etc. We all contracted COVID-19.

Instead of a pleasant week on the beautiful Island of Lewis and Harris, we self-isolated in a hotel room. And that was even less fun than it sounds.

At least in your own home you can move from room to room, and you have all of your facilities and possessions around you. Five hundred miles from home in a comfortable but quickly boring hotel room, feeling under the weather is a no-fun pastime.

One thing we did manage to do before we had to go into isolation, was to visit the Clach an Trushal stone, Scotland's tallest standing stone.

Clach an Trushal stone

That almost makes up for everything.
