Off to the Isle of Mull


The Isle of Mull is a 45 minute ferry ride from Oban. The Isle’s capitol is a town (burgh) called Tobermory, which has a population of approximately 700 lovely citizens. More importantly, Tobermory means “Mary’s Well” according to wikipedia. How exciting for those of us named Mary! Now that we’re pleasantly stuffed with oysters, let’s go visit the Isle.

These ferrys are rather a lot like the ferries back home in the Puget Sound. There’s also whale watching and oysters and numerous other little things that are similar to Seattle, yet so different at the same time. However, as far as we know, we do not have any Spanish galleons, sunk by a curse, laden with gold, lying at the bottom of the Puget Sound.

That’s the legend, at least. Per local folklore, a witch may have cast a spell that caused a Spanish galleon to catch fire and explode (it may have been the gunpowder magazine on board, alternatively). Supposedly there was £300,000 of gold bullion aboard.

The Isle! The Isle!
The Isle! The Isle!
Where are we? Oh.
Where are we? Oh.

Love these cute wooly fellers.
