Best Laid Plans

As part of the "Escape from Covid grand master plan" it seemed like a good idea to visit the small harbours in and around the Forth, of which there are many. So, 5 of us from Burntisland SC decided to sail to Fisherrow, the harbour for Musselborough, East of Leith.
Mother Nature had other ideas and a heavy Haar descended in big patches, a "now you see me, now you don't" sort of afternoon. As it meant a return trip across an increasingly busy shipping lane and Grey Dove was the only one with radar, prudence got the better of us....
We drove round to The pre-booked Thai restaurant for dinner instead.
