At Sea

We are at an excellent quaint hotel in Port Appin and the food is five star.  Even though this place is small (11 rooms), the chef is apparently well known in Europe. 

We elected to slow down today.  I took an early morning hike and let everyone sleep in.  Our late breakfast was followed by an hour walk to the point.  After reading a bit, we headed to the sea town of Oban to take a boat cruise to see wildlife.  Our captain (we chartered a small powerboat) was very knowledgeable and we saw salmon farms, sea eagles, lighthouses, and seals. It was an excellent afternoon on the water.

Now more reading and then dinner.  Scotland is just like much of Europe.... they like to savor their dinners and make it a whole evening event.
