West is Best


Annie and I headed over to Ardnamurchan today for some chill time. I’ve blogged about a committing sea kayaking trip about this peninsula in the past, though today Annie and I were just going for a walk and a bumble; to snap some scenery, and just generally have a good time in what may have been one of the last warm days of Summer.

I was inspired by a post on the Kilchoan blog earlier this week regarding fossils on Ormsaigbeg beach.  I hoped to find myself an ammonite – but no such luck.  The views were good though…

Annie and I wandered  v e r y   s l o w l y  along the beach taking about 3 hours to cover just 2km.  Rockpools are always fun.

Eventually we returned to the car and made our way over to the light house, the most Westerly point on the British mainland.  We watched several ships and this yacht, “Lark”, pass the point.

Luck lets us down with finding any ammonites, but right on cue, a pod of dolphins passed the point just below us putting on a great show…  Smile
