Scotland Adventures with Baby / Leek and Mushroom Soup

The Isle of Mull is a mystical place to drive through. It is on our itinerary because we have to pass through it to get to the Isle of Iona. We set out as early as possible with Llewyn (our then 5-month old) and all of our gear because we know it is going to be somewhat of a drive from our B&B. Little do we know about single-track roads and passing places and the misty fog that rolls in and obscures the view of oncoming vehicles. Many times we think we're in for a head on collision as I grip the side door (once I gripped Zak’s arm on the shift, forgetting that I was sitting on the opposite side of the car!) and hope we don't slip off of the edge of the unforgiving road with no shoulders. Too bad for Zak: he isn’t able to take in the views because of his constant attention to the road.
