Tuesday 14th May
Well it's been another busy week. The high winds caused huge swells making landings on the island impossible so for health and safety reasons we had to cancel the Sunset Cruise. We had some great dolphin sitings on Wednesday and another George, the lab, came out to see us! The puffins and terns have arrived back and are pairing up. Some guillemot eggs have been spotted and our swallows are back in the lighthouse. The construction works in the harbour are still going on and this can cause a bit of congestion around the booking office so do allow a bit of time for parking etc.
We had a visit from the lifeboat when they came out looking for some missing kayakers. The Discount Vouchers have arrived. Please contact us if you need any!
Take care everyone.
Sunday 5th May
The highlight this week was Oscar coming to see us with his humans but we also had a bit of a problem when the fog suddenly rolled in. The Trinity House engineers went home on Tuesday and we've been trying to get our Discount Vouchers sorted for distribution to all our B&B/Guest house/caravan site owners. Most of this week will be taken up with advertising our first Sunset Wildlife and Photography Cruise for this year which leaves at 6:45 this Friday May 10th. Full details are on the Sunset Cruises page on here.
Masibe thanks to Sarah O'Dowd, Elizabeth Batty Taylor and other people for sending us pictures we can use on here and on our Facebook page this week. Finally we had a bit of a shock when one of our passengers, John Hare, took a shot of Steve and George. It's funny to be on the other end of a lens! See you next Sunday!
