Porpoises at dawn

Well this is going to be pretty rubbish because it’s well after 23:00 and I need my bed. I had fully intended writing more but it’s taken me all evening to rotate this video and post it on YouTube, being ‘not of the computer age’ I took it with the camera sideways and it is not a simple matter to turn it. Or at least not to a numpty like me.

Today actually got off to a promising start,

and I even got some painting done before we sailed at 7:55 but it quickly deteriorated, brightened only by the sight of a school of porpoises leading us into the new pier at Clachan 🙂



Anyway, here it is taken from the good ship Loch Striven on the 9:25 sailing to Raasay, as seen by the crew and the only two passengers on board 🙂
