Pity all the pubs are on the other side of the water :D

But yes, Findhorn is a lovely walk - from either direction. Culbin or Rosisle forests (see my earlier summertime pics for both approaches)

........And although it has been remarkably mild this winter (so far!), i canna wait for the springtime.

Ah yes..... the locals. From slightly further round the coast*, still friendly but sometimes a little too obsessed about other people's fins...

Walking along the canal yesterday, I grabbed a few photos of some Canada Geese that have "moved in". I didn't realise that they were the bad boys & gals of the bird world..according to https://www.pitchcare.com/news-media/canada-geese.html

"Should there ever be a prize for Britain's most hated bird, then, surely, it would go to the Canada goose. If Canada geese were human, they would be lounging around all day doing nothing, claiming every welfare benefit in the book, driving their neighbours out of town and notching up ASBOs around the clock."


Well, it was an old Daily Fail article ;)


Image


The photo was taken at 4pm using my MotoG phone - light was fading fast. The birds had been snoozing on the canal bank and then were leisurely stretching their wings and entering the cold water for a swim.

They didn't seem too worried by my presence..maybe they were thinking "watch it.... come an hav a go if you fink yer hard enuff!"

Is that near Lossie? (I'm seeking clarification just in case our southern readers are a bit hazy over the geography up here) :)

It's what parents scare their children with if they don't eat up their vegetables. Big green smoking electric monster with big yellow eyes is going to come down from the sky and eat them for you. ;)

It is actually - just up the road in Elgin.

For those that don't know, Elgin is twinned with Mordor :D

US Navy Virginia class nuclear attack submarine glides into Faslane in the early morning.

In my dafter, younger days I used to go fishing for winter Cod on the Gare Loch opposite Faslane. On arrival back at base, after a tour of duty, the RN submarines had their crew in full uniform, lined up and standing to attention on the deck.
In the photos of the US submarine it looks like a bunch of day trippers on deck. :)

I wonder if they are on deck as a mooring party. Health and safety concerns probably explain the life jackets. I'd still expect them to have some semblence of military bearing rather than looking like a gang of blokes having a fag break outside an office building.

Back before 911 I was lucky enough to be driving a RIB down Loch Fyne when a Norwegian submarine hove into view. We matched speed and course with her and drew up alongside, exchanged pleasantries and carried on with our trip whilst they went their own way.

Similarly, driving a RIB leaving Plymouth harbour we met a submarine just coming in. Another memorable moment, greeting the deck crew and being made to feel welcome visitors.

Wind the clock forward past 911 and we saw a British submarine, stationary in Plymouth harbour. As I drove the RIB towards her a dirty great black RIB bore down on us out of nowhere, with a bunch of hard-nuts in military uniform aboard. They "parked" their bow on top of our tubes and made it very clear that our best interests were to head away from any submarine we might notice.

It's a poorer world for 911, in so many ways.

I’m sure most Snuglets know of RIBs but for those, like me, who don’t, they are Rigid Inflatable Boats.

And again, back in my dafter days while fishing opposite Faslane, a RIB came over and motored up and down, giving me the once over. The occupants were dressed in black with balaclavas and they were sporting sub machine guns. It was a bit intimidating, but no self respecting angler could be put off by such a small matter - or could they? I didn't ask them to pose for a photo.

They were too quick for me but the mountain hares were fairly galloping around at high speed.

There was a good reason for their haste though. They were bright white against a brown green backgroud and drew as much attention as a sneeze in a Whuhan cinema.
