Wednesday 12th August Rothesay, Isle of Bute to Lamlash Harbour, Isle of Arran
Lucky Dad paid for Mum to go on the Radar Course – we needed it! For a change Mum was desperate to leave our pontoon. She was up and at them early, tea in bed for Dad and an early morning walk for me. We left in low cloud/fog. Yesterday we could see the other side of the Loch, today it had disappeared. As soon as we left the harbour we couldn’t see much and Mum was worried that two ferries run every 15 minutes so where were they? We should see at least one of them but nothing. Tracked on the radar – not a problem! The cloud lifted briefly for us to sail down to Arran and again the weather improved to the occasional shower as the weathermen would call it. I got drenched every five minutes, I do not kid. Our mooring for the night was Lamlash bay, a complete contrast to Rothesay, I need say no more.
