I was slightly confused, thinking that the Ponant explorer ship anchored off Skye was L'Austral and had sneaked in from a different direction. Then another appeared over the horizon from the direction I'd originally expected. It turns out that Le Boreal had sailed down from Kyle of Lochalsh to visit Armadale.
Was this a historic moment that I was observing? Was this the first time the 2 sister-ships had met since Le Boreal returned to cruising? was this her first cruise since repair?
and both ships visible, L'Austral with Le Boreal just visible.
