Cottage change over this morning, the busiest day of the week. Visitors coming and going, yachts leaving and before you know it yachts will be arriving, it is the bank holiday week-end!
It was very quiet this morning as the guests waited to board. I guess, for 1 couple two weeks of sunshine, for the other two couples, one week of continuous sunshine makes for a very reluctant departure from Rona and it is much the same to-day.
The worry to-day was the wind, although the ferry trip this morning was perfect the suspicion was that the wind would or could be a problem, sure enough by lunch time it kicked off and by mid afternoon we had a full gale. That made for some very interesting arrivals at the mouth of our harbour. With huge waves the yachts were being tossed about but no one seemed to have any problems apart from a bit ofd an uncomfortable ride. First in was John MacIntyre the seasoned sailor from Gairloch delivering a boat with the owner Mel’ , they had left lossiemouth on route to Gairloch a few days before. Then in quick succession 3 more, two from the South one from the North.
Whilst all this was going on myself and L were up top, L in the Polytunnel weeding and watering me in the larder. I was getting the rest of the larder bits and pieces together for the coming season. We saw four young stags this morning and this spurred me on to keep on track with the preparation of the larder for the Environmental Health first then stags second. Very soon venison steaks for tea.
