Passing the Beacon

Fergus and I went for a walk out to the shipyard after lunch. I watched a fishing boat come in from the Kilbrannan sound while Fergus had a potter about. It was felt pleasantly warm. Then we wandered down to the slipway where I often get the passing the shipyard shots, but the light was not in my favour.
