“People sometimes ask me if I am ever bored here…an island …very quiet winters… I reply; Look around you.. Everyday, in this beautiful place, I can walk and run here and I do.. With my family, friends, my dogs or on my own… In the sun, rain …The sky, the hills, the colours constantly change… It is truly an amazing place to be, and I am lucky to be able to spend my time in such a wonderful way!”
