End of the Aga

I paid a flying visit to Mull last week to deliver the new electric range cooker and two king sized mattresses which are the only things for Mull that can't fit in a car. We also had time to take the old Aga out, sadly it won't come out neatly to be reused as everything was corroded up. So a large metal wrecking bar and a few judicious whacks later and you can see the result. I wasn't expecting the 8 bags of soot that it had been insulated with though and the mess was horrendous!

There has been a pod of 5 or 6 dolphins in Oban bay for the last 2 weeks and the girls happened to be on a two day dinghy sailing course last week and had the dolphins jumping around, over and under the boats as they were sailing. The local seal watching boat trips have turned into dolphin trips at the moment!
