The kitchen started work again at 6.00AM and so did the noise. It was so loud, and it woke both Scamp and me and we just couldn’t get back to sleep, so I suggested we make an early start and get on the road. Breakfast was very good – the food IS good. Shower in the room had an air-lock in it and squealed when you turned the flow up above a trickle. Scamp made sure she complained about this and the abominable kitchen when we were booking out and got a small amount removed from the bill after the receptionist had gone to speak to the manager. The manager chose not to meet his irate customer face to face. I wonder why.
The rest of the run up north passed without incident until we were on the single track section out of Portree when a diddy of a woman decided that we should reverse back a couple of hundred yards to a passing place and allow her through, even though she had just driven past a passing place. I’m afraid that wasn’t going to happen and I was pleased to see her go incandescent when I made silly faces at her through the window. Some people think they own the road. They don’t, I do.
Went for a drive later as we’d arrived far earlier than expected. Drove to Aird and I got two paintings done – TWO! Ok, one was a small sketch, but the other was a full watercolour, both of the same scene. I think the small one is better than the bigger one. I’ll maybe post them some time to garner opinion.
After dinner I went down the slip and got some possible photos. Will know better when I process them, but that may be a problem as it looks like the battery on the Mac is dying. Down to 37% of its designed capacity.
