The beach at Blackwaterfoot at high tide. Looking across to the Mull of Kintyre. Tidal patterns in the sand. Caused by the lapping of water while the tide was going out. A happy Flyte. The tide has gone out and returned his beach to him.

Drumnadoon Point at Blackwater foot. The bakery at Blackwaterfoot... David's favourite place on the island! The cottage we rent at Feorline Shore. Our cottage... cozy and well kept.

The face is amazingly dog-like. Totally unperturbed by our interest... The super-moon on our last night on the island. The grounds of Brodick Castle. Satisfied at the end of a great week.
