O is for Ocean Breeze (A to Z challenge)
Russell refueling the rib
Living on an island I'm never far from the sea, in fact the road follows the coast all the way around. I love the coast (I grew up by the seaside), whether it be sunny or stormy days, the sea constantly changes colour and if forever giving up its treasure. I am always amazed at how many shoes get washed up! And the occasional Viking!

For those who are tempted by a little more excitement that a brisk stroll on the beach we have the aptly names Ocean Breeze Rib tours - run by Russell and Elspeth. Trips include a jaunt around Holy Isle or Pladda, evening cruises, or my favourite out to Ailsa Craig, a crag a few miles off Arran's coast and home to thousands of sea birds. I also hear there may be night cruises for stargazing later in the year - can't wait.
