Air & Sea

It's another super day here today, with a little more cloud than yesterday but hardly a breath of wind. The RAF took advantage of the conditions to send out their top Hercules low-fliers, who were obviously practising shaving the tops off trees and chimney pots.  The hill behind the C130 is Glas Bheinn.

Meanwhile, the Rene Descartes reappeared this morning on the Mingary Pier side of the Sound, and then set out very slowly again towards Tobermory.  We're assuming she's laying a second cable, though we couldn't see anything running out from her stern.

This yacht came in to Kilchoan Bay yesterday afternoon and tied up for the night on one of the West Ardnamurchan Jetty Association's moorings.  It's late in the season for yachts in the Sound, as demonstrated by Sunday night's gale, but the present run of fine weather must make the risks well worthwhile.
