After an absence of two weeks we are back to normal. Awaiting the MV Seaflower to-day I had a chance to measure the steering cable from the Rona boat, 8.5metres!! A quick phone call to Malky in Portree proved negative but Caley Marina in Inverness had one, hopefully I’ll get it picked up tomorrow.
I headed up to the top of the hill to have a look for the Seaflower and quickly dropped down to Dry Harbour to check the mink traps. As there was no sign of the boat. Only one of Kenny’s fishing boats bouncing about checking creels.
I might have guessed that as soon as I ventured away from Big Harbour they would arrive.
On the dot 1.00pm the MV Seaflower arrived with Hugh. They had a bumpy trip but not too exciting. Hugh enjoyed the Cat’ and found it very stable.
The sun came out for a while in the afternoon and it was quite pleasant, we had a lunch, the usual for Kenny, Cullen Skink then it was cheerio and down to work. A run down of the plan for the power upgrade and a bit of juggling to see what is best for all the houses. We settled on the two new Outbacks in Big Harbour with the old Trace inverter going to Dry Harbour to handle the windmill power with the Outback there carrying on as normal.
A couple of months ago there was a guest who thought she saw some penguins. We have seen some strange things on Rona but penguins?
However two weeks back the visitors to the cottages reported the same. So I asked them for photographic proof. To-day I found their email with the attached image and as you can see there was at least one penguin on Rona!!
