Reckon to be at Lamlash about 1030 ish, all being well. Will see you then.

Just back from 2 weeks on the island. Think I spotted your boat on a mooring in the bay.

We did the run back from Millport to Brodick last week in a good swell, also runs to pladda, skipness, and Tarbet, Loch Fyne.

All good stuff, saw loads of wildlife.....porpoise, basking shark, and would you believe, what we think was a minky whale!

Certainly believe you saw a minke. I've spotted one twice in the last week from the ferry - both times in mid-Clyde, about a mile or two N. of the ferry track. Maybe tomorrow...

Right, sack time - see you all in the AM.

Just back...

...after a great day out, despite the weather.

There are piccies on the way from a variety of sources; some may be later than others.

Thanks to the crews of Amber, Crusader and Mhairi 2 for being good company.

Now, where's the shower I promised myself...
