I was just going to the larder to cut up the stag we got on Thursday night but the Dreich Day has just got dreicher!! It is now lashing rain, joy. So I’ll get the pictures onto the blog.
Last night I had an invite out to Yacht Escapade, always a lovely dinner and of course too much alcohol, but great fun. Nick and Anne are great hosts.
Earlier in the day we got our second fleet of creels out, we like to catch a few prawns for tea, good fun and the visitors are very interested in the fishing and what comes up.
Calum and Irene had left after helping to get the creels onto the pier. We had had a good weekend with Calum’s birthday celebrations, which after a birthday breakfast, consisted of sorting the Escape house central heating (at last).
We got it a lot cooler and under control but Dave and Sharon our new visitors will be trying to turn it up it is very cold to-day with the North wind.
Always best to read the instructions.
It was not all work though and we went out to Garbh Eilean to look for stags, Irene and myself scrambled onto the Island and Calum fished for a while. We saw stags but only managed to get a Mink!
We came back in and had a wee dram before tea, then just as we were tidying up we got the call, MV Puma with Richard and Barbara on board had snagged our mooring.
What fun, Richard 87 years old, had dragged his anchor doing a bit of ploughing and had caught the ground chain. We tried to free him but it was hopeless and it was decided that we should leave him there overnight and a fellow yachtsman would dive on the disaster in the morning. Richards wife was full of advice!!!
Am getting invaded by very wet yachtsmen and ladies, must go!!
The Olivers are looking forward to seeing you, and to our trip to Rona in August. Will you still be stalking then ? We’re coming straight to Rona this year and after you we’re off to Harris for a week. See you soon !
