The Loch Goil Locals

I had a restless night .. so got up at 5 in the morning .. put my boating gear in the car .. and went to Loch Goil.

It turned out to be one of my best impulsive days boating yet.

A freezing fog cleared as I launched the boat ..

I enjoyed the sighting of a fog bow . .reflected on flat calm waters

And watching some of the local wildlife...

Mid week winter boating is a sure way to enjoy the peace and quiet of having the sea to yourself.

My worries disappeared with the tide and I will sleep well tonight.

Hope you enjoy watching my day unfold in the video.

Part two will follow when I have it written ....

Hi Leguma ..yup..it was a fantastic day and its the first fog bow that I remember seeing. I have plenty photos of rainbows and even Brocken Spectres ..but fog bows are a rare treat :-D

Hi Ian ... it was a special day indeed ..and all the more because it was total impulse .. at 5am in the morning and by 8.30 am I was on the water !!
I'm almost a two hour drive to Loch Goil too :-D
