What a beautiful morning, not too bright perfect for checking the few creels we have, 1 fleet had been out since a fortnight. 2 weeks of Northerly swell (maybe more in fact) had meant it was impossible to get to. But to-day it was not too bad just a couple of feet high and slow. First thing I picked out of a creel was an octopus, quite a big one but not the biggest I’ve had. The fishing was ok a few squats and the odd prawn. Just as I was about to finish the swell turned me and the creel rope went in both props’. 20 minutes later I was free to go and shoot the rest of the fleet, I’d had enough so I went in.
Here’s Olly before his return to the deep. He climbed out of the bucket, then tried to get over the side so I thought it about time he went back!!!!!
As I was heading in ‘Yacht Silver Bear’ left for the Outer Hebridies (I think). Hope they enjoyed their venison?
The rest of the day was a blur as we get ready for the changeover at our holiday cottages, 2 sets of guests coming 1 leaving. with a joiner and his partner coming to put in the new window in the Lodge tomorrow. So a busy week-end ahead. Plus the call to sort the central heating in our biggest cottage ‘Escape’. Our friends Jennie and Laurie ex Yacht Rona, were having a cold week over in Dry Harbour. It turned out with working on the CH earlier in the week we had switched off Zone 2, the hall which heats the whole house. Nothing to worry about but better to get it fixed for the honeymoon couple coming to it Monday .
Just another day!!
