Soggy Sanaigmore - time for coffee and cake! Next: Currie Sands.

Well for once we were beaten by the weather - our rAmble at Sanaigmore yesterday afternoon was a wash-out, with no takers on a particularly soggy Sunday. It was however a good excuse to go in to the Outback Gallery for delicious coffee and cake, and talk about what rAmbles we'll have on in August! We start next Sunday the 2nd with a visit to Currie Sands near Portnahaven, where we'll have a wander round to spot any interesting wildflowers like Sea Holly, and have a look at the crevices where the waves come crashing in, as well as what might be along the shoreline. We're not too far there from where the LIMPET wave generator was, and you'll see the power of the waves along the rocks there. Also nearby is Frenchman's rocks which is usually good for sea-watching. If you fancy coming along, meet at the Currie Sands parking area for 2pm; it's just £4 per person or £10 per family (2 adults plus children), and if you're a member of the Islay Natural History Trust it's only£2! Don't forget to wear stout footwear and dress for the weather; sorry no dogs. Hope to see you there!
