Thanks folks ... It was a great day even though I was very tired. The photos are of Loch Etive which is a two minute walk from the house but I was careful not to include the house as I don’t want to risk being swamped by uninvited fans.
My reason for moving is that I personally could not go through another three month lockdown without boating. I suspect lockdowns will be around for a few years yet .. so I can take my daily exercise rowing round the loch and there is no one who can say Im breaking the rules...when Lockdown three arrives.
Although it used most my life savings ..I can easily live on my pension. The house has solar panels on the roof and a wood burning stove. My plan is use the boat to collect the driftwood for the stove. Of course there are plenty cod, ling and mackerel to be found in the sea loch..as well as the species Im not supposed to catch..but when I cant tell a sea trout from a gurnard.. whoi can blame me if I get a few for the pot ? So cheap to live the good life
Some more photos from yesterday
And of course I only need to run the Falls of Lora to reach open sea ..thisd is a video I made of running the falls last year..it was during the spring tides and full flow ...
Yup..Im going to have a ball in the promised land. Internet will be arriving at the end of next week so more videos not long after..
