Friends, Fishing and Photography

Things that have happened in August:
Garry and his girlfriend Heather were camping in Shieldaig when their tent blew down and snapped a pole in the wind, so we had some surprise house guests for a week and made new friends. Turns out he owns the Knoydart Snack Co. So check it out if you ever go! It looks amazing! The week after, Anders Brogaard the photographer and his girlfriend Camilla came to stay for a week. Lots of photography tours and boating, dog walking and fish eating!

Saturday kicked off with the Rowing Regatta and the motorbike trial with the Isle of Skye trials club, which went on most of the day. The street stalls opened at 1pm. Lots of local seafood and crafts, raffles, tea and coffee, face painting by me, and Archery provided by Shieldaig Outdoor Adventures.

Saturday night brought camping on the seafront with friends and the street ceilidh. Shame the weather had other ideas! Torrential rain put a damper on the dancing but I managed to get Tom to dance the Canadian barn dance with me before we ran for cover!

Sunday was a morning of rest, then they boys headed out to catch dinner and Iona and I took five dogs out walking! A lovely afternoon had by all and a fish supper 🙂
