That was the weekend that was, I guess. Another busy time on Rona, Sunday morning Calum arrived to check out on the electrics, especially the larder and water shed. After a full day we are a lot further on in the refurb’ of the electrical system here. The weather was fine although a little grey. Flat calm sometimes then quite blowy. We had a visit from two Skye based kayakers and had a good chat with them, they were looking for fresh water and we were happy to oblige, they were heading back Sunday but I heard through the grapevine that some kayakers had got stuck so I guess they might have been involved.
Saturday night there were seven boats in Rona, some did not come ashore and left early next day, the others came for walks and there was a little trade. Some avoided landing dues but the French yacht ‘ Seaflake’ from Cherbourg had a bit of shopping. They were travelling from their home near Grenoble but keep the yacht in the North, their 82 year old Father, Gilbert spoke very good English and they were all really enjoying Scotland.
Half of Sunday was spent preparing for Kenny and Linda, MV Seaflower coming over for the night, they arrived late but we had a good meal and crack. Calum and Irene visited for a while then left us to it, it was quite a late night but always good to have visitors in the Lodge. It was even better to wake up to glorious sunshine this morning.
Linda and Kenny left mid morning and all that is left to do is clear up and get ready for Dave coming from Portree, so for the rest of the week it is computer work and if the sunshines I’ll drag Dave away from the computer and get some manual work done, loads to do, deciding where to start is the problem.
Anyway I’m off to Portree to get Dave.
