Warm Water

The sea has finally warmed up along with some very hot weather and a lot of rainfall.  This means that I have actually been doing things other than climbing for once.  Sorry climbers this months photos are all watery and proof that I occasionally do other things than hang out in the mountains.  I have also managed to take some landscape photos which has fallen a little by the wayside in recent months.  IMG_1019

Sailing boat with the Cuillin of Rhum behind.  Went for a walk with Hannah today and it was meant to be torrential rain – we were a bit surprised to see this!
