Waiting for the Next Meal

Dustaffnage Castle and Oban, Scotland

Aside from a shout in the dark sometime after midnight, when I thought that rain might be coming in the roof hatches of the caravan (it wasn’t), I slept well and entered the morning , ready for the next adventure. Jim had another little walk in mind – along the coastline to a place called Dustaffnage Castle.  Jim hadn’t been on that path before so off we went with a trail guide and no map.

Caravaning in Scotland

Jim had planned for us to head north in his truck hauling his caravan to a caravan park north of Oban, Scotland.  He felt that he could handle the preparations quite well without me :-), so, while he was getting things ready for the trip, I had a few hours to travel to Eglinton Country Park near Irvine, Scotland to meet up with another photographer, Stevie Manson to photograph the flora and fauna of the area. Some of the birds that Stevie had hoped to show me didn’t materialize and it was a bit breezy for insects but we did manage to have some fun shooting what we found.
