The weather alternated between fine sunshine and squally sleety showers, and the F5 - F6 SW wind made the run each way across Easdale Bay pretty exciting.
By the time we got back to Easdale at about 2pm it was high tide, so we pulled out Baby Blue and started on our way home.
Got back today having shredded a tyre mid way down the M40. Fortunately we pulled over OK - but not before the disintegrating tyre had demolished the mud guard!
When I put the spare wheel on, I noticed that the hub was decidedly wobbly - so the bearings must have been damaged as well. Fortunately we had a spare hub and bearings in the spares kit!
