The Old Man and The Sea

After yesterday’s chiller drama where the cooler unit was tripping out, shifting some polystyrene boxes which were stacked near the cooler blower cured the problem, we think. So this morning it was back to business cutting up the carcase and sorting things out for the changeover tomorrow.

The visiting yachties are still here and ‘Toby’ the ship’s dog was very pleased to have a present from the larder.

Later in the day ‘The Old Man Of the Sea’ came up the road, he was sailing a 35ft yacht with his wife, he’s a sprightly 90- years young, great. Once they stocked up on venison and smoked haddock they headed back to their yacht.

Later in the afternoon Baron Kelvin arrived, good friends from Glasgow, David and Alison Clark. They arrived at the door inviting us out for a ‘cocktail’. So, after the week we’ve had it was good to chill out for a couple of hours tonight and head home to prepare for the changeover tomorrow.

About Bill Cowie

I've been living on the island since April 2002, alone for the first 5 years, my partner L joined me in 2007. We manage the Island for a Danish family who bought the Island in the early 90's. Their hopes for the Island are to make it self sufficient supporting its inhabitants and that is where we come in. We look after the stock, 3 holiday cottages, machinery, boat and of course the visitors. It is pretty challenging but it is a beautiful place to live and work, we love it and strangely enough we love it even more in the depths of winter when all is quiet apart from the gales and rain. We do a bit of fishing, stock work, stalking deer and loads of other stuff. We have good support from lots of people whom we have met over the years and have become involved in the Island. Too many to mention here but keep an eye on the blog, they'll be there for sure in the future.
