The weather man was predicting one decent morning before the weather goes bad again so we sailed along the South Shore inland towards Blackness. We stopped on the jetty to take the dog for a walk and have a gander at the castle.
We were invited into the club house at the Blackness boat club and two splendid blokes bought beers for us.
Feel better now that we have doubled the sailing hours for the week.
Blackness Castle - shaped like a ship
Maggy flirts with yet another boyfriend - she is an utter harlot. Hottest thing on four legs at the moment
Ruth belongs to a 6 foot 4 kitchen fitter - he needed more headroom - so he built it. It sails fine apparently
Flowers in boat winch
former chapel - destroyed in the siege of Blackness
Brilliant signs to stop people letting dogs foul the public land - notice Scottish child in the anorak they have them welded to their bodies at birth
the wind was blustery on the way home so I put the little trisail up - it is such a handy scrap of material. Not the prettiest sail in the wardrobe but it really helps us along and the boat stays perfectly balanced
Lousy weather is arriving so we are heading home today until the weather man tells us that spring has arrived
