Here we are at the end of a very busy week, made even more interesting with the continuing gales/winds/hail/lightening/etc/etc. But it is heading into winter and at the end of the season it is always an interesting time.
Yesterdays job was to get the boat out of the water. But a wee gap in the gale and I shot out of the harbour and picked up the last fleet of lobster pots, result 4 lobsters. A good end to a very good lobster season. Tonight Friday, lobster and steak just for a change, excellent.
It was a wee bit rough but good to be out on the boat away from the build at Dry Harbour.
Which is progressing, the last thing was to strip the old kitchen to prepare for the master craftsman Calum our resident (next week) electrician .
It was good to get a chance to tidy up the site before the guests arrive Saturday.
Very pleased with the build, it is just as we wanted it and we look forward to getting it finished on our return from holiday, yes holidays!!!!
It is always a bit of an issue leaving Rona and driving back and fore to Dry Harbour the changing weather throws up great views and you wonder would it not be much easier just to book a cottage here.
The showers have been very heavy and here’s one heading over to Shieldaig.
The view on the way back in the jeep on Monday was the sheep heading over to Dry Harbour. Their field is sodden and it is not fair to shut them in there so we let them out hoping they will stay around the house, fat chance!!
The weather is everything and this morning it was just so black it hardly got to daylight.
Torrential yet again but at least we had some sort of gutter up. That was the week that was, we are ‘Nearly there’ off to Kingairloch tomorrow for the weekend with Kenny andLinda from Shieldaig top celebrate their 60th birthdays so we are looking forward very much to that. Then onto Spain, Barcelona on Tuesday, should be good. Will be in touch, from the train no doubt. We are not flying!!!!
