We got a bit peckish so dropped into Newhaven alongside the FishMarket slip and got a fish supper (with mushy peas of course) from the Loch Fyne fish restaurant made famous on the telly.
Bit of a palaver- covid regs meant we had to phone in our order (from 20' away on the jetty) then wait 2 metres apart in a queue to collect.....
Delicious though, worth the wait, even if we then had to eat in down below because of the tourists treating us as an exhibit!

Our first proper sail for a long time; a quick daunder around Inchcolm, pick down and lunch at Hound point, back through Mortimers Deep to peep into Aberdour, a broad reach across the Forth to Newhaven for supper and home again, jiggity jig, smiles all round.
