Steamy surprise

Spent the morning on walk to and tour of Brodick Castle but delighted to find that the steam driven Paddle Steamer 'Waverley' was doing an afternoon cruise round Holy Island. Too good to miss and Chris and I have spent half the cruise watching the engines. Beautiful machines and the ship creams along very smoothly. A nice little steam 'fix' for the day off. Weather rather dull today but dry until now.
Back to normal tomorrow with early start to get first ferry from Lochranza 16 miles away. Some long days ahead do hoping rest will be a good preparation.
The photo is over the stern. Note twin wakes from the paddles and Ailsa Craig below the ensign.
