Part of the plan for the Geography Month is the Show OMSH the World, and you can read all about it here.
This morning, we went out with our colourful OMSHs, to take photos of 'where we are in the world'.
Here are the kids and OMSH at the Butt of Lewis lighthouse.
(I told you Butt meant the TOP. Told y'all, and you wouldn't listen.)
Well, here we are at the very Edge of the World.
Katie, Catherine and the Wee Guy standing at the 121ft lighthouse....
....officially the windiest spot in the UK!
and wind. And standing positions!
We left the Butt, and drove along the coast, and stopped at one of the highest points in Ness.

In the forefront of the photo, and to the right, is a peatstack.
On the 'horizon' to the far right of the photo, is our home.
'Hi House! I'm not often this far away, am I?!'
Okay, so it's only a mile or two. It felt far away.
At Port Beach, there's a sign to the infamous Butt.
3km. To those of us who prefer 'old money', that's about a mile and a half.
And here are the OMSH mascots, with something hiding behind them.
The morning was absolutely gorgeous.
This beach is round the East side of the island, and so it much more sheltered than 'our' beach on the West, but today, we had lovely rough waves.
Then we met Lupa. Isn't he gorgeous.
A White German Shepherd. I took dozens of photos of him. Really, I fell in love with him.
He's eight years of age, but still, apparently, thinks he's a pup! He was playful and friendly, and - all in all - adorable.
OMSH wanted in on the action too!
Aaaaaah! The waves caught him, and even with wellies, he got soaked!
I'm soaked, Mum! Eeeew...inside my wellies!
I must show more of Lupa. (His name means 'wolf' in Italian)
Aren't you glad I'm a fluent Italian speaker, or you'd never have known that?
Two seconds after this photo was taken, he flattened me!
(Oh, you didn't believe the whole 'fluent in Italian' thing, did you?)
My Chariots of Fire moment.
Who'd be in a classroom on a day like this?
