I appreciate that as soon as I land on a beautiful beach in remote Scotland..I enjoy a nice nip to clean away the salt from my mouth...especially if it’s been a hard crossing..but always park my boat first.
But when I landed on this lovely sandy beach..not too far from Ullapool ..I wondered if I was imagining things ... by having too many mouth washes on my island hopping adventure..
... or if the driver of this RIB had over done the liquid refreshments... his prop looks like it needs a bit of refreshment too ?
Now you may wonder why I wondered if the skipper of this boat had too much sun when he parked his vessel ?
.. so.. here is another photo ..taken a little further away ..
And another..from even further away ...
And the RIB parking bay is just to the right of my boat on the lovely sandy beach.
Perhaps I missed the point of this parking space..and it is to let the boat dry out better . It gets a bit of swell here ..so re launch could have a bit of a bang too ?
The boat was tied off at both ends and there was a tent on the area just above the boat..so it hadn't broken moorings and been washed ashore .
Of course..it may all be my imagination.. as I do admit to having a wee nip myself.
