Kilchiaran ramble

Three of us had a gentle walk this afternoon at Kilchiaran, stopping to look at the Sand Martin colony before walking down on to the beach, across the burn and then along the south side of the bay. The weather was warm and still, the threatened raining slipping to the south of us.
