When Fergus went to Tayinloan ... by beachcomber149

When Fergus went to Tayinloan ...

... to see the Island Queen

6.5C and sunny all day long, with a few clouds along the West coast of Kintyre.
Light ESE/ENE breeze increasing to moderate N/NNW with gusts to 36 mph.

After lunch Fergus and I got my little car and I drove up to Tayinloan. Fergus whined and whistled and hooted all the way. That's what he seems to do in a car, although he is perfectly happy looking out the window as we go along.

When we got to Tayinloan we saw the ferry head off for Gigha then we walked along the beach to see the Island Queen. Fergus liked the beach. There is lots to explore. He wasn't much interested in the Island Queen, so we wandered on and looked for pottery pieces (and found some with good colours). On the way back along we stopped and I persuaded Fergus to wait long enough for me to get his picture by the wreck.

The ferry was arriving back from Gigha just as we were getting back to the car park.

On the way home Fergus doesn't usually whine, which is a relief.

On the Clip while walking:
BBC Radio Scotland

Afternoon music ... Runrig, Searchlight then The Big Wheel.

DMC-LX7 f/2.8 1/800 sec. ISO-80 5mm (35mm focal length 24mm)
I'm glad Fergus stood still for a while, as he brings the photo alive.

Dramatic pic especially with Fergus included - I think he's taking charge of your household... they do that you know!

Fabulous picture. Related to your narrative. The beach is my collie's favourite place of all time. She doesn't whistle and hoot but whinges, whimpers and grizzles all the way.

@fbailey Thank you :-) Fergus is our fifth dog and the first to make such noise in a car. Being an adopted dog (aged 7) he has a history some of which is unknown to us. He does love a beach :-)

@colinbarber013 Thank you :-) Too long since I last visited the wreck. I see your bio says you are an ex blipper. I am still blipping and use the same name there.

@beachcomber149 Thank you and I need to update my bio as I returned to Blipfoto once I was convinced the community run project had retained the original spirit of the site that existed before the disastrous tie up with Polaroid.
