Landfall in Scotland

In July 2002, a friend and I sailed across the North Sea from Bergen (Norway) to Inverness. The trip took over 3 days and was the beginning of our attempt to Circumnavigate Scotland by sailboat.

Picture above is from the locks of the Caledonian Canal through Inverness. If you look closely at the right of the picture, you will notice a seagull. This seagull is a smart guy.... Read more about him in my "general tips"

Some of my pictures have some red patches in them. This is sadly due to a fault on my old camera and false light....

    Hi David! I love the cap and the seagull story. It's great when wild animals learn to take advantage of human technology :-) I'm going to Inverness tomorrow for a week... woopeeh! No sailing for me, but plenty of drinking instead, haha! Take care/ Jess
