We watched a local fishing boat pass us out of the harbour and later on feed a sea eagle that was nesting just up to the left of this picture. The light was getting brighter as we headed up the coast of Skye.
It became quite apparent that we would be faced with quite a large swell all the way across. It took some getting used to watching the group disappear behind a wall of water. However it could not have been that bad as the camera stayed out all the way across!! We decided to land on a stoney beach with a few breakers on, this was a good team effort to ensure both boats and paddlers were safe.

As I have previously said there is nothing better than pulling up on a secluded beach for lunch and a cuppa. This was Raasay at it's best with plenty to explore. Out came the pocket rocket and the scene was set for lunch.
Once lunch was over it was time to explore the local beaches! We had spotted a sea arch and a few stacks on the way across that looked worth a look! We left Jim to take an afternoon nap in the sun while we went exploring.
The beach and light was spectacular with only wildlife for company. The camera did not stop snapping away looking at every angle for the perfect pic!!
