The Way of Colour

There were People Crossing the Doirlinn

15.8C with sunny sunshine all day long. Moderate NNW/NW breeze.
(Prestwick 17.5C)

After lunch Fergus and I went for a walk out to the old shipyard and wandered out the shore path to Slaty Farlan. The tide was well out but I walked with Fergus as far down the slipway/ramp at Slaty Farlan as I could then gave him the chance to go into the water. He was keen and clambered over the rocks and seaweed and went for a short swim and a bit of wading and a lot of shaking before clambering back up to where I was waiting.

On the way back along Low Askomill we stopped to have a seat a couple of times. I say we because Fergus likes to jump up and sit beside me on the seat. We came back home along the esplanade and back through town. It felt a lot warmer than 15.8C.

On the Clip while walking:
The Scotland Outdoors podcast with Mark Steven in Orkney visiting the places which inspired writer George MacKay Brown. This one I highly recommend.
An episode of BBC radio 3's The Verb podcast with Ian McMillan (poet, author, playwright, and broadcaster): The NHS at 70.

Afternoon music ... Music from the television series Endeavour (The Origins of Inspector Morse).

DMC-LX7 f/3.5 1/2000 sec. ISO-80 12mm (35mm focal length 60mm)

Note: Go large and look just to the left of the red and white beacon on the Doirlinn to see the people.
