Flyte on the way to his beach: Firemore. No time for being coy! This is what I have been waiting for all those hours in the back of the car. All to ourselves. David and Flyte on Firemore.

Flyte and Jean near our cottage. Range upon range of Scottish mountains. You can see why we return here year after year. Low tide. The dry island on Firemore with a view across Loch Ewe.

The sea returns. Jean and Flyte on the machair. "I was using this path first..." "Blasted tourists!" Possibly the most handsome dog in the world.

A view from the headland. Heather on the headland. A cruise ship anchored off our harbour at Cove. Dog? What dog? I am invisible....

The last light of a beautiful day. A perfect puffball. Flyte tries the water... ...and discovers he can swim. High tide.

A sinister submarine cruises past our cottage. The wild orchids on the machair. A closer view. The purple variety. Flyte leaves his mark.

Our last day at the beach. A parting message from Flyte's girlfriend: "FLYTE PMAIL ROSIE".
