The message somebody has written in the sand reads ‘Stay Safe + heart symbol.’
You’ll have to take my word for it that BF515 (BF for home port Banff, Scotland) is red (and white) but she is, and she’s being fitted out in MacDuff Harbour. In this image, it is low water and Big Red is resting on the harbour bottom.
One slip and you’re in the drink!
A fine establishment – closed due to the virus…
We have several ways of getting down to the beach here in Banff, Scotland with the dog. One of the routes, we call in the Skylark Walk, takes us across the hills and past fields where the nightingales soar high above us. And, here’s the view we get as we walk across the hills.
We all need courage at the moment…..
That’s Banff, Scotland over in the far distance…
…closed of course…
I have a soft spot for the Voe Jarl – something of a cross between a tug and a workboat. The Voe Jarl arrived in MacDuff Harbour tonight. MacDuff Harbour and the town of MacDuff are extraordinarily quiet at the moment with all pubs and restaurants closed because of the virus. Let’s hope we get back to normal soon.
Vegetarians step away from the blog! Just help land 9 boxes of these little critters from a trawler that arrived at MacDuff Harbour about an hour ago. Until I started this job (harbour night-watchman), I had no idea it was possible to catch prawns this size in the waters off the coast of Scotland.
We saw a new type of chicken today whilst we were walking the dog on the beach. We know it is a chicken but we’re wondering what kind of chicken it is…
British fishing vessels have a name and a registration number. BF = Banff, Scotland and the registration number 9.
