Last night I was in Portree picking up Dave, Dave is our technical support. I have bought a mac book thingy and he is going to set it up plus sort out L’s pc. But in the meantime I’ll have him doing manual graft. On the way back from Portree we bumped into dolphins, we tried to play with them but they wern’t interested, just one performer but as usual he was in the water before the shutter caught him.
So to-day we decided to lay Calum’s cable, from the genny shed to the house. As usual by the time we took the plywood off the boat, shifted the garden boxes and answered emails plus calls it was 11 o’clock. But by 2pm we had it done and dusted.
After that it was downhill, guests started to arrive, Dry Harbour visitors were shouting for a boat trip and venison burgers were needed to be made. Baron Kelvin, Dave and Ali had phoned to book the mooring and in the middle of it all John and Jane MacInnes Yacht Stroma rocked up, good to see them, John is an engineer at Ardfern. With the French yacht crew ashore having showers and washing clothes all in all another full on day.
We were invited out to Baron Kelvin, Dave’s motor sailor for dinner and who are we to refuse. But before our night out we had to go check some creels. 6 o’clock we left and by seven we were back. A few prawns and squaties later we were washed and dressed ready for the nights entertainment with Dave and Alison plus their crew. we had a very nice evening floating around in Big Harbour enjoying the sun going down with a glass or three!!!
