Without our little sidekick alongside, Mr Gaucho and I braved a very strong, icy wind (still some sunshine) for a walk behind the dunes of Kiloran Bay and back along the beach. It was a good walk, but not the same without Tilly pottering about between us.
Hot on the heels of the island's book festival, they launched their Festival of Spring on Monday, http://www.colonsay.org.uk/Events/Festival-of-Spring. It is three weeks of wonderful things - events, workshops, walks and talks. Another good reason to visit this brilliant little island again next year!
