Views in Inverness - the last half mile or so of our passage
[Maryanne]We left Caley with new batteries, and a bigger credit card bill, and set off to do the last mile of the canal - not much to do in a day. We wanted to be ready at the last sea lock for an early start the following day. We took it easy, and enjoyed reflecting on our first passage of the Caledonian Canal.
We reached the other end - the Inverness entrance to the Caledonian Canal
[Maryanne]So – we are about to leave the Caledonian Canal and head out into the North Sea. We have nice new charts, and plenty of supplies and one very peculiar problem – we have too much alcohol aboard! When we enter Norway we are limited to 1L of wine and 1L of spirits each. We don’t drink too much, but a quick stock takes found bottles of whisky, rum, gin and vodka, among others, which we need to use or lose; I’m suspecting we should be able to find some new friends soon.
