Managed the first two, that is heading over to the Pier and mending most of a fleet of creels. Ardhu is becoming the most photographed hamlet on the peninsula, but it looks different almost every time you see it.
Little mishap going from the dingy to Alistair’s boat, ended upside down on his foredeck, better than the water but a wee bit undignified. Dead leg but no further damage. Busy Pier as boats being repaired, returned and setting off. Back to Camusterrach
and a chat with the ice cream lady,Sarah, love the is side of living in Applecross and always try to find time to stop and talk. Time running on so went our separate ways, me to cut a few logs and prepare some of my tea, and Sarah to prepare for a busy shift at the Airstream.
Scene set to the north
and weather holding, it was up the road in plenty of time and saw the arrival of the participants, some in neat little numbers, slightly disturbing,
pixies, maybe gnomes,
cat and super women
Lifeboat comes across to attend the start of the Race,
ready now that Skipper has arrived in a neat little black number.
So left Milton Pier as the rafts were being put to sea
and the lifeboat sitting offshore.
Just a little warning about the last photo….enough said.
