After the excitement of Mondays delivery of our Castaway, it was back to business of taking our visitors out fishing and catching some. Blair, Fay’s youngest always bakes cakes when they visit Rona. This year it was Minions? Tasty they were too. He presented me with some cakes when I went over to Dry Harbour to tell them the departure time for their fishing trip.
I like a cake, too many in fact so that is why we do not have them, but it is nice now and again to have one, Thanks Blair.
The fishing went well, in as much we caught two small Mackerel, some crabs and Squatties. The Sea Eagles was about , as always, the wind was making the sea a bit bumpy so we sheltered, fishing, for a while. But with nothing much else happening and seals around the boat we headed in. Dinner was sorted for everyone and it was looking kind of greyish coming from the North so time to call it a day. Just before we set of we spotted a Gannet resting in the water, so we motored over, it was unimpressed and just turned away, it had obviously been feeding, we could not find the fish though.
When I got ashore we had a call from Andy, Dan one of our ferryboat skippers to ask if they could visit Rona that night. It was not a particularly inspiring evening but a run up to the Kilt Rock and over to Rona was the plan. They arrived just around 8pm and were with us for half an hour. We showed them Janet MacKenzie’s Cottage (The Widows Cot) and told them the story and a little of Rona’s history. The trip went well but half an hour after their visit the wind got up and they escaped a bumpy ride home. The report from the visitors was good, despite no whales, Dolphins, otters!!! They particularly enjoyed the Rona stop.
