Weather better so an early start, 6am this morning my eyes wouldn’t work but half an hour later the fresh sea air was enough to sharpen the senses. It was such a nice morning a quick decision was made and we headed out fishing. Two hours later we were having breakfast with the catch in the bag and the Fulmers fed.
After our quiet start things started to get busy, the intention was to strim the rushes around the Lodge and fields. Visitors from the cottages, yachties, then our two day tripper boats all arriving added up to the day running away from us.
It was pretty much full on with lots of questions and requests but later down at the pontoon a enjoyable time was spent getting the crack with Gemma and Kenny on MV Seaflower www.torridonseatours.com and Pam and Kevin on MV Spindrift .
Nice to see the passengers having a good visit and our ‘Famous Grouse’ put in an appearance harassing the Church Cave visitors. They left together just as two yachts appeared at the mouth of the harbour, so off we went again, more chatting. I’m beginning to wonder if anyone works in Britain anymore? The young crew of Yacht Campa came ashore, their first time on Rona, they were on route to the Faroes enjoying 4 months away from it all. By this time I’d managed to get back to the strimming after losing two springs and one screw from the head , running out of string and then petrol. I asked the other Yacht crew the time and they said ten to seven, I thought it was 5 o’clock!! Time to clock off.
