Typical Bank Holiday…

Hi Everyone,

Hope that you are all well and enjoying this May bank holiday !

We had quite a lot of boat traffic this morning in the Kessock Channel, mainly the local Sea Scouts who were out training youngsters in how to handle powered craft. Kesslet and Charlie, who had suddenly appeared, both chomping on fish were getting the attention of the boat users, the Sea Scouts were great as usual but there was one little light coloured inflatable with two blokes on it that were following the two dolphins almost a wee bit too much for my liking, if they hadn’t kept the safe distance away from the dolphins that they did then the Police would have been getting a little phone call…what is it about bank holidays – It’s always the same !

In the photo above you can see some of the boats today in the very twinkly water, and if that is you in the light coloured inflatable boat nearest my camera, then behave !

Best Wishes,

Charlie
