Today was a very warm day with no wind. Jonathan and I felt we had seen everything we needed to on Kerrera so we motored all the way to Tobermory in the company of Ricks who is sailing single handed on Recipe, a Norfolk Smuggler. We also met our friends Jane and Julian on Wombat coming the other way. They live in Hampshire but Wombat has been kept in Scotland so they have been able to expore the area properly. The picture shows Wombat at sea.
When we picked up a mooring in Tobermory it was so warm that we both went for a swim off the boat. This was fairly brief as it soon became clear that the warm weather had not had so much effect on the sea coming in from the Atlantic. After recovering from this we went ashore for supper, and met up with Martha who is working in Tobermory and helped out with crewing on Bonita on her Baltic trip in 2016. The picture shows Tobermory harbour from the terrace of the Western Isles hotel, overlooking the bay.
