As Henny has left the group when at Ben Nevis, it's now only us four women together. As the sun is out in its full glory the three Dutch women enjoy sunbathing at the little beach. I have long ago learned to shy the sun, and can enjoy the beach at home every day if I would like to, so I want to do some more exploring and go on a short boat trip.
The trip brings me across from Elgol, closer to the Cuillins and Loch Coruisk and on the way we can see the Inner Hybrides. Close to the other side the captain brings us close up to a spot frequented by seals who like to do their own 'sunbathing'. It's a playful little group.
The next day Dieuwer, our painter in the group, finds a spot near the beach and harbour and spends her day painting. Evelien and Ankie go for short walks and more sunbathing and I stay with the camper and enjoy another day of reading.
On the way back from Elgol we stop for the night at Loch Slapin.
