Crime Wave on Rona!!

Shock, Horror!! L’s morning visit to the poly tunnel was marred by the theft of her one and only ripe tomato. The evidence was there, a size 10 and a half boot print, the one legged yachtie had stealthily removed the prize specimen from the vine leaving his mark on the freshly sown seed bed.

We know who you are and will pursue the matter, the local police were not surprised as a wave of vegetable related incidents have been occurring. This undesirable element in the sailing community must be caught. A warning has been sent to other polytunnel owners in the Outer Hebridies.

More news later!!!!!!!

Yet Another Sign On Rona, + The Evidence.

Once we got over the trauma of losing our tomato, we quickly regrouped and got on with our life.

A beautiful morning was then spent catching up and preparing for a full house this month. All three cottages are now booked and it will be busy weekends from now on in. After dinner it was up to the garden shed to unload the timber I got over yesterday.

More Sarking Boards for the new shed.

The rest of the day was spent putting the creel hauler back together and chatting with the new yachting arrivals, they were keen to help in the hunt for the tomato burglar. They spotted a half eaten banana and tomato up at the trig point but on closer inspection we cannot find any bananas growing in the poly tunnel.

A visit to the pontoon revealed another couple searching for some lost property, here are the crew of Rebecca and Rona who were on the rocks last Thursday night. They were trolling the bay for their lost anchors, maybe they should wait until the 0.5 tide tomorrow?

Searching For The Kedge

Quite a few yachts in by 5.30pm, joggers, fishers and ‘drinkers’, an interesting bunch, then two separate yachts came ashore, both from Peterhead but unknown to each other. By 6 it was a busy place with kayakers joining the population, two paddlers from Aberdeen were camped by the ruin and were enjoying their tea, they were very happy to pay for their pitch and contribute to Rona’s economy especially after losing one of our tomatoes to-day. A very East Coast feel to the West tonight.

L wants to stage a CSI tomorrow, watch this space.

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.
