Tonight an old fashioned picture blog. Claudio Riva, webmaster of www.laphroaig.it, active member of the â€œSlow Foodâ€ movement, Italian and Islay enthusiast sent me images from his trip to Islay, in the first week of March. Besides beautiful wintry scenes there is a touch of spring in his images and you can see the progress on a couple of building projects such as the almost completed exterior of the Islay Hotel and the new silo's at Port Ellen Maltings. Claudio sent many more images which I will post later.
