June 8 – Lochinver and stormbound

By | June 8, 2012

The wind is howling outside and has been blowing all night we are staying in Lochinver today (Friday) and plan to leave for Kinlochbervie tomorrow. Weather calming down to F4/5 NE.

Lochinver pontoons – the sun just coming out after the blow

We had breakfast in the Lochinver Seamans Mission – a brand new building – recommend the full English for £5.

Spent the rest of the morning sorting out diesel. There is no fuel tomorrow and we did not fancy moving the boat in the strong winds so it had to be the containers. The Lochinver harbour office people were very helpful and even transported our full (heavy) containers back to the boat.

Joe made bread again and Andrew showed off his culinary skills making an apple crumble.

More tomorrow on our progress to make it to Kinlochbervie.

Note – if anyone wants to see more photos there is now a More Photos page with additional photos taken on the trip.
