and so we resumed...

August brought another change of plan,  well perhaps a reintroduction of a modified plan?

We've just returned from Canada via Ireland.  Watch this Space for a report.

July 2015

Technical note:

The 2015 schedule is currently on hold (and removed from navigation bar).  Apologies,  this is because of unforeseen circumstances.

We hope to resume, as normal, late 2015 or in 2016.

SY Wyvern of Stavanger

Today saw Scotland and Norway come together when we found Stavanger Museum's historic Colin Archer yacht in the Caledonian Canal.

On her way to the 2015 Tall Ships Races,  she was accompanied by her sail-training replica,  Wyvern of Aalsund.

Garden birds

Welcome to June,  welcome to summer?

Some birds are feeding their young,  others are only beginning to look for somewhere to build their nests.

...and on to Tobermory

As we drove off the ferry in Fishnish (the Isle of Mull ferry terminal),  hail started to fall.  Fortunately, by the time we arrive in Tobermory,  the weather changed and sun appeared.

Bikes, tourists & Ballachulish.

I set off for Oban this morning and got as far as Glencoe before the lovely sunshine and thought of a café stopped me.
