We took a drive through to Inverness on Sunday to do a bit of grocery shopping and just get out the house a bit. The weather was a mix of sun and rain. We mostly managed to miss the rain, which was nice. :-)
Hubby took us down to the canal and locks that join Loch Ness to the Beauly Firth. There's mooring for boats and yachts down there. I took several photos, but it was raining and some of them didn't come out. Here are the best.
The canal marina, looking along towards Loch Ness, just before it started to rain.
Next is a very smart canal boat. It had everything you'd need for holiday fun stashed on board from a tiny sailing boat (you can see it up front) to canoes, kayaks and bicycles.
One of the houses looking onto the canal. What an amazing place to live, with yachts literally on your doorstep!
After that we got our groceries and then went home via the back roads through farm land. It was a lovely drive and a very nice day.
