Kilchoan Sunrise

Sunrise today was very similar to the one six years ago which prompted the start of this blog - link here - on a day which provided some interest out at sea, including....

....the return of two of the RN warships which went north on 5th October, M110, HMS Ramsey and....

....M107, HMS Pembroke. Other than the RN ships, we haven't seen much action during this autumn's Operation Joint Warrior exercise, except for a few fighter 'planes passing overhead.

Today also saw what must be the last visit this season of one of the larger cruise ships, Fred Olsen's Black Watch, which called in to Tobermory briefly this afternoon before continuing south down the Sound.

Closer to shore, the trail camera which has been set up in the small pool by the bay below our house is producing results, the pictures being mainly of otters....


....such as these two playing in the pool, but also....


....of a passing mink, which is bad news for the local crofters.
