St Just on holiday 2011

A few pictures from our week away. Both Gerrys caught us as we headed for Rothesay on Friday night, 0600 start the following morning to get the tide round the Mull and then into one of our favourite places, Ardfern.

Ullin of Staffa, the skippers of these boats have some skill to come in through rocks, swell and very shallow water.
