Hammie and I were up before the rest of the work party on Saturday to decorate House Number One for the Royal Wedding. We may have got a bit carried away with the Harry and Meghan bunting…

 

The work party embraced the spirit of the occasion, and Hammie organised American pancakes for breakfast. As the weather wasn’t the best we worked in the morning, doing general maintenance, tidying the workshop and rubbing down window shutters.

 

Afternoon entertainment came from Ellie working with the National Trust of Scotland, who had been camping on Dun counting the puffins. She gave a fascinating talk about tracking puffins and seabirds and the research being carried out to find out the causes of any decline and what can be done to improve the situation.

 

We had invited John, Ciaran and Craig as guests to our Royal Wedding Party. We started the evening with toasting our own version of the royal couple! We then enjoyed poached salmon for our main, with a fabulous pavlova topped with passion fruit, grapes, kiwi and gold dusted chocolate truffles for dessert! A meal fit for the queen!

Were we the most westerly Royal Wedding party in the United Kingdom?
