So far we have had a great winter based in the Marina at Dunstaffnage near Oban. We have a rather prettier view here and enjoy looking out to the hills and the wonderful sunsets and sunrises we see. We have done a bit of exploring around the nearby headlands, from which we get stupendous views out towards the Sound of Mull.We hope to get much further afield when time allows.
Red Moon is protected for winter with a roof cover, plastic ‘double glazing’ and strong covers over her aft and forward decks. There have been some wild and windy days (one is happening as I write this !) but there have also been many calm and stunning winter days. We have offered cruises this winter with just this kind of day in mind. No takers so far but we are available in January if you want to blow away the cobwebs and start the New Year a little differently!
Since October we have been keeping busy with private chef work in various lodges around the Highlands and we hope this venture will grow alongside our summer cruising business.
In late November we celebrated Scott’s 60th birthday with a variety of outings and happy times with friends…
Christmas is here on Red Moon and she looks great with pretty lights up the mast and our little tree up in the wheelhouse. We have been preparing for a trip even further south to see family and friends in Devon for the festive season.
The New Year will see us busy cheffing or cruising, or both, and come February we will be preparing Red Moon for the new summer season, starting with a haul out and bottom clean and paint! We are pleased to, so far, have our first booking of the season at Easter – but we are available earlier than this 😁…!
