Tayport again

The picture shows some of the very many dolphins that accompanied us into the River Tay yesterday. The tides are very turbulent in the entrance to the river and maybe that makes it easier for them to find fish.
This morning we woke up to a moderate breeze, but the forecast was a bit grim - easterly gales and plenty of rain. We thought it would be wise to move the boat at high tide to the sheltered harbour of Tayport on the other side of the river. Our old friends Edgar and Else on their lovely steel yacht Windbreker are here too and they went into Tayport just ahead of us. They were with us on the 2013 round Britain cruise, and on our trip to Holland in 2014: it was lovely to see them again and admire the many improvements to their boat. 
In the evening it did indeed blow hard, with a gale from the east and plenty of horizontal rain. We had a curry in the excellent Bell Rock restaurant and on getting back to the boat were grateful to be moored head to wind in a secure harbour.
