On the way back to the cottage we stop at Dougrie bay, we have the beach to ourselves. The little building on the right is an old changing hut.
A & N in the distance (you can just make out A's pink jacket), they're making more sand drawings.
Now back to "our" beach. The sea's a little rougher today. You can see two gull chicks on the shore near the sea, we often watched out for these chicks once we realised they were there. They're quite well camouflaged.
It's starting to rain.
A last beach view for the day, this time with added Scooby Doo mystery machine. Rain prevents any evening play on the beach this day.
Now to our last day...
Yup, at the beach again!
We find a real live crab.
We make a paddling pool.
I photograph the neighbour's washing line.
A little progress has been made on yet another Eva's shawl. I wanted something to make that I didn't have to think too hard about and I do like these shawls. This is my fourth one. I love the colours of this one and am very tempted to keep it for myself but it's intended for a friend. Pattern here, yarn here.
Thyme, it smelled delicious.
The bay at Blackwaterfoot village where the river to the sea was frequently occupied by a family of swans. Then it was time to leave...
The view of the ferry port from where we ate our (expensive!) fish suppers.
