An unbelievably beautiful day.
Coco has learned to sit quite still when I am bent double over flowers and bushes - she sat patiently while I enjoyed the autumn colours in the heathers this morning in the woodland near the Old Schoolhouse.
Walter looked after the washing.
A buzzard sat on the top of the owl box. And Farmer and I went to Ulva for lunch. Well, it was the most incredible day and we couldn't waste it, and the Boathouse would be closing soon, and we wanted to drop marrows off for Jeanette at her new restaurant Ballygown. (There are lots of enterprising young women in the Ulva ferry area.)
A fisherman caught tiny pollock (and put them back in the water). I could see them swimming around as the sea was so calm.
Donald had to go and get more oysters on the way back to Ulva.
I loved the red bucket.
After lunch in the sun at the Boathouse, delicious as ever, we walked the short circuit. It was beautiful as ever, and really warm.
Autumn was really in the air. We stopped for cake and tea on the way back to the ferry. Thank you Boathouse and Donald for another lovely visit.
At Calgary we waited for the school bus in the sum spotting dragonflies.
I had to go back to Ulva Ferry for a meeting in the evening. The bonus was the beautiful sunset.
