Time to stop and reflect

We woke up on a sunny Friday morning beside the Moray Firth at the Rosemarkie Camping & Caravan Club site

We took Ruby down on to the beach and watched for Dolphins, but nothing appeared.

Back to Puffin for a bacon sandwich (must buy more baps). No rush today as we weren’t travelling to far today.

We left the site and travelled all of quarter of a mile around to Chanonry Point, It was very busy, but we managed to find a parking spot.

With the wind whistling around the camper it was a fight to open the door.

A small group of people were on the beach with cameras and binoculars at the ready.

Dolphin sightings on our last Scottish trip in 2010

We made a cup of tea and the extreme knitter knitted socks while I kept watch for the elusive dolphins. They didn’t appear for us this time, so we continued on towards our next campsite at the C & C club site at Nairn, which is directly opposite the Rosemarkie site on the other side of the Moray Firth.

The pitches are set in woodland and we booked in for two nights. A quick check of the larder revealed a shortage of goodies to munch, so a shopping trip at the Coop in Nairn was called for. The Coop provided us with the much-needed baps.

We returned to the site and cleaned out Puffins interior, after many visits to the beach the sand gets everywhere and I replaced a blown brake light bulb.

On our previous visits to this site we have always found it to be relaxing and a calming place. We have been on such a whistle stop tour of Scotland so far that we decided to spend some time here and recharge our inner batteries, so I popped into the camp office and booked an extra night. We settled down for the night after a hearty campers stew for supper (with baps).
