Up In Caithness 4
My fisherman forefathers would have been blushing in their graves yesterday as my lack of sea legs quickly finished a fishing trip onto the grounds off Wick. There didn't seem to be many fish about anyway so no big loss. Beach cricket on the magnificent sands at Reiss, north of Wick got us through until rain stopped play at 4.00pm. Highlight this morning was seeing HRH the Prince of Wales (called the Duke of Rothesay), beautifully kilted abaove. He was calling on Caithness General Hospital in Wick. He is always in the county at this time of year, staying in his late Grandmother's Castle at Mey. He always attends the Mey Highland Games next Saturday. Apparently it always rains then!
Tomorrow we're off back to Huddersfield
