Shaggy dogs on Eilean Imersay, Islay

The SE coast of Islay is a maze of reefs and islands. Some of the channels dry out as the tide recedes like this one inside Eilean Mhic Mhaolmhoire.

After a short drag we were afloat again.

Another maze of channels announced our arrival at Eilean Imersay.

We enjoyed second breakfast on this idyllic beach on Eilean Imersay.

David entertained the male members of the party with a series of shaggy dog stories (he is a vet, raconteur and bon viveur). Mair hung her head in despair at how easily the male mind is amused.
