Misty morning

We didn't have full sun when in Rathlin but that was OK.  More than OK, actually, since full sun is rarely interesting, not like what we got:

Misty morning on Rathlin, looking over towards 'the mainland'

Here's a grand wee 'fixer-upper' for someone wanting to get away from it all...

Actually there's a fairly decent tin roof on that, so there wouldn't be much 'fixing-upping' to be done.  Just stick a wood-burning stove in there and you'd be grand.  No trouble from the neighbours anyway, and there's a lot to be said for that...

You'd probably want one of these, though:

I mean, there'd be no point in having all that water nearby and no boat, now, would there?  That one there snapped up in Church Bay would be fine - plenty big.

Then you could sail all around the island and even over to the Land of Tartan, just visible in the distance here:

Of course you'd have to watch out for those coal boats, or whatever that is coming down the North Channel there.

  1. Couple of great foggy snaps here Michael, and a lovely boat it is for sure. I would bring my own, though. I think. It's a slow one for sure, but still a mighty grand tub it is.
    I'm away for the moment as well, but try to stay kind of updated on the blogs... so here we go :)
