Farewell to the Hebrides and all the other magical places we have been this summer. Although the weather was not perfect, all our guests company made up for the rain with smiles and good humour. Oban our host port has been more than welcoming and we say goodbye to all friends here. It somewhat feels more like home than Cornwall.
At 1700 this afternoon, Bessie Ellen will set off to home waters of the Westcountry where we will stop in Fowey for the shipyard before heading on down to Northern Spain for some late summer sun. The forecast is not looking great even now, heavy rain later tonight and winds from the South West which makes sailing hard given that we only have six days! Never mind, what ever happens we always have a good adventure.
