    PS Waverley at Rothesay

    The large cabin-cruiser or yacht was apparently the singer Simon LeBon's. A dull rainy day unfortunately. This pic could probably fit in at least three categories, but as part of the same doon the watter trip as my previous two posts it seems logical to keep it in the same category.

    ARGYLE arriving at Rothesay

    We sailed to and from Bute on the 'Argyle', and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The ship was spotlessly clean, and was purring along like a happy sea-kitten (I say 'kitten' as I cannot say 'cat', in case Brandane sea-dogs become restive re. ship types).
