Amusing aside to the bike slide on Saturday evening was Steve nipped down stairs to make sure no one was breaking into 6/7 not knowing it was me clattering to the floor outside. South Africans for you, always think the worst. Up nice and early with only a couple of sore bits, me off to the Inn and No3 off to Airidh Drisheag on the south coast of the peninsula,
those endorphins again but Dougal
and Eilidh could not get out the door fast enough. Eilidh, a bit wiser than Dougal taking the choice of not having a dip in Loch Kishorn.
and a necessary stop off at Milton. No3 took the south photos and they look a lot colder and a bleaker than the stillness of Milton and the Bay.
The light is always changing at this time of year and looking north a little light appears on the lower slopes.
Arrived in plenty of time and by 12.30pm five staff hanging about doing very little. By 2.30pm running about serving a three-quarter full Inn. Easy to work today though as everyone very pleasant, easy-going and appreciative of what they got. Lobster, Seafood Platters, Langoustine and Scallops along with fine Rumps of Lamb all seemed to go down a treat and the time shot by. In particular the All Blacks were out in force and one to look out for was one who did play rugby in Edinburgh and who was aiming for the Edinburgh side. Have his name and will look out for him to see if he makes it. Great group from Leeds/London who alerted the Inn to the sunset taking place to the South West. An empty Inn for ten minutes.
The evening continued with the arrival of the Dundee entourage and I was handed the youngest for a while. Impressed he did not crack up but then he did n’t all evening. Even with The Boss out gallivanting again there was little need for me to stay much longer and was home by sevenish, taking care as there was a glisten on the road again.
Had hoped to be on the water today but the forecast of a couple of days ago had deteriorated and a fresh growing to strong breeze was predicted and had arrived by the middle of the day. Watched one of the south boats punching her way south by early afternoon and was glad not to be out. Made it up the road today on the bike with the pooches, they have never been fitter and Dougal never been dirtier. It is going to be a busy week as there are large numbers of people arriving for Ne’er day festivities. The Hall will be open as usual and a brief dalliance on the way home from the Inn will be in order. The Roads situation is causing certain amount of concern locally. May not say too much until I get the official word back from the East but needless to say our service is not improving.
