A couple of days of variety. Thursday evening was steady busy with plenty to do and the prawns just got bigger
Yesterday back to the Varuna to finish off the keel, some rust appearing so must be getting somewhere. Stopped off at our little Highland stream which produces the purest of water.
And then over the top with little snow on the road
but bonny to drive through.
Anodes and a coat of anti fouling on next week. Three hours of that is the limit so went over to the landing craft salvage.
It was low tide so the dive bags and pumping was going flat-out.
Impressive operation, looked daunting but everyone did appear to know what they were doing. Obviously succeeded as the craft is now in Kishorn waiting for the rehab work to start. Seems a wee bit late in catching the tide this morning so Ewen was late back tonight, putting her up the shore and moored off for the weeks coming gales. Photos next week, better taking them in her proper place as I find it quite upsetting seeing boats under the water. Have experience of that in the past and not recommended. The chap that owns the boat is Nigel who raised the Mary Rose in the eighties. Seems he had seafront property in Portsmouth or Plymouth and sold up for redevelopment. Now has a farm on Knoydart, hence the landing craft to bring in supplies for the farm, it being so remote.
From there it was away to Shieldaig for a massage and chat. Not too bad with only a couple of tender areas. Always leave Sarah’s in a gentle mood and driving up Shieldaig Glen this was mirrored.
Decided to go back over the Hill and fine again with the snow all gone but showers still coming in from the west.
Finished up with a couple of sirloin steaks.
Thinking no much happened today but just finishing a six-hour shift at the Inn. Good night, kept busy with all the tables in the bar full. Local birthday and some nice contacts made, transport family from the east coast who lived a couple of miles from the glass blowers from the same area. The couple from Paisley kept them company. Bit of hydro and land reform chat and the night is over. High praise for the pan-fried monk fish in a lemon and herb butter. The wolf fish, breaded and served with a couple of scallops was no bad either.
