End of a Mull of Galloway day.

We continued eastwards along the Mull of Galloway and came to a huge cave.

As we left the cavern in the gathering twilight, we caught sight of a waxing gibbous moon.

That reminded me of a total eclipse of the moon that was due at 3am on 21/02/2008. Since I had already got a great view and some photos on the last eclipse at 23:20 03/03/2007, I decided to give this one a miss!

Rounding the Mull of Galloway we encountered a brisk eddy which impeded our progress towards East Tarbert.

The chill February air caught our breath as the sun sank below Tarbert leaving us in darkness.

I have said this before, but you should come and paddle this amazing coast before the crowds come!
