Was up this morning at 4.30am, thinking about deer so after 1/2 hour thinking about deer I got up, had a prowl about and saw a few, it was so hot on top of the hill at 5 this morning but in the valleys almost frost. The yachts (that will be the three non payers!!!!!) were idly swinging on their hooks and Rona was just coming to life, it was so good to be up then, reminded me of my milk lorry driving days (without the truck of course).
The beauty of getting up early is that you get so much done, so it was onto concreting the pads down at the ruin for the walled garden to take shape. But the heat was a problem so I had to soak the concrete most of the rest of the day. Then it was onto the drainage at Dry Harbour with the JCB, but I have to say after weeks of no rain the end of the path where it is soft is still soft and it was a struggle to get out, but I did and sort of improved it a bit.
Back to Big Harbour, pick up L and the camera then back to DH to take pics of the empty cottage for the web site (Skyescape/see tomorrow) but I got tired so we called it a day. Back again to BH just in time for tonight’s yachts arriving, good to see ‘Ayl Hallows’ Ian from the East coast ( ta for the mooring fee) good to see you, quickly followed by Super G our pals from Perth, Muriel and Davie Banks. So tomorrow is going to be busy with visitors coz we had a call from Portree super yacht ‘Kestrel’s skipper the intrepid explorer Malcolm MacAskill letting us know he was dropping in , ‘would you like a P & J? he said, can’t wait!!!!
