Keills Port South Quay
At the end of the peninsula south of Tayvallich lies the little-used Keills Port. This slipway is the still-operational South Quay and maintained by Argyll and Bute Council. The gated road to the quay is a public road its full length and, contrary to the signs, it is possible to turn a vehicle at the quay end. That said, the best approach is on foot or bicycle to maintain the tranquility of the place. This was once busy with traffic from the Isle of Jura, which lies across the sound. Seals and otters can be seen here and the slipway itself is covered with sea pinks in the spring.
The quay was built in 1821 on the orders of the Parliamentary Commissioners for Highland Roads and Bridges and is attributed to Thomas Telford.
A new bar on Great Western Road, Glasgow.
A miniature carpet of tiny moss plants by Cam Loch in North Knapdale.
More eye candy from Edinburgh’s Botanic Gardens.
A red door in Cabriès. Looks like they have fierce mice.
This balcony caught my eye when we took a carriage ride around old Krakow. Several balconies were adorned with flowers, but this was the best.
We’re in Poland for a wedding, and this is the illuminated sign outside our bedroom as seen from the balcony. Pokoje means rooms to let.
Time for a Saturday cat. When this gets posted I’ll be in Poland, and Tinkerbell will be in the tender care of our neighbours for a few days.
The effect was the in-camera high-saturation setting, which works well with the old carpet and chair covering. It gives herself a somewhat baleful stare.
(or it might be a Delilah – I’m not good on flours).
