I was able to get very close on several occasions while it was looking the other way and then take photos. I'm sure it could hear the 'click' of the camera but couldn't work out where the sound was coming from.

It drove past me and I had to look twice, a white duck was sitting on the back seat looking out the window at me. My passenger wouldn't/couldn't believe me but after taking a look agreed; there was definitely a duck looking back through the car window.
... and it didn't stop there. A goose was sitting in the front passenger seat ! (although I didn't see this myself).
There must have been a good reason but I can't think what it might have been.

this is the last in the series of 14 pictures taken as we drove into the storm.
The light was amazing and we needed sunglasses but all around was getting darker. The forecast was a thunder storm but it never arrived.

The good news is that Saga will introduce 'Saga Pearl II' ex.Astoria on a series of ex.UK cruises. cruise schedule
Cruise & Maritime Voyages along with Ocean Countess.
There are a lot of visitors around (which is great) but it does also mean journeys take longer and ferries are busier. The forecast was also bad and, not only that, but the weather also looked bad. Even if we had gone over to Skye, I doubt if I would have got very good photographs.
Then this morning I looked at the AiS and found she had sailed down through the Sound of Mull during the evening. This is something I didn't expect so once again missed her!
Saga Rose is in Kirkwall next week- the weather is looking good but it is a very long way to go to see her. Then again, I never have seen her. Watch this space.

The yachts were visible almost as soon as they appeared out of Oban Bay and remained visible as they approached Tobermory but my many photographs turned out to be rather poor.
Just to prove I was sitting on the old pier at Lochaline taking photographs- here is one of the better (but not good) views
