Chilly day out

The Bed and Breakfast thing is really frustrating this early in the season. We’re all fired up, smiles and tourist information at the ready, only to receive a trickle of guests. It’s good in one way as it means that it’s a gentle reintroduction to our breakfast routines, not to mention finding our way around the new kitchen! On the other hand, it’s all a bit of an anticlimax. So, with the weather being blue-sky beautiful yesterday, Kevin suggested that we took a wee trip out on the Bike.

A trip which involved a ferry ride from Armadale to the mainland, with some lunch en route and a pootle around the coastline just south of Mallaig, the ferry port. It has to be said there was a fairly stiff breeze which tried its best to penetrate our biking togs but nonetheless, we arrived at Armadale feeling fairly comfortable.

To cut a long story short, the ferry was delayed due to some plastic having got wrapped around one of the propellers. We soon discovered that no matter where we stood, the wind managed to find us and make a thoroughly good job of chilling us down while we waited for the next ferry, a tub of a thing which appeared to have all indoor seating situated in a very efficient wind tunnel! Needless to say, by the time we reached our destination for lunch, we were almost as blue as the sea!

Anyway, lunch and several cups of tea later, we were sufficiently thawed to continue our exploration of the coast, although with thanks to the ferry delay, we had less time than planned before our return sailing. But my, what a beautiful coastline…

 

At least there was a conveniently positioned container to shelter behind while we waited for the return ferry! Very cold, but still a lovely day out. Hopefully we’ll get the chance to return, with a picnic maybe, when the weather is warmer!

    When the weather is warm you won’t have time! All your people will be coming. Wind tunnels on a tub of if a ferry sounds quite awful! Lucky you had your leathers!
