2008-07-02 - Ekte Pirat 2008, Day 5 - Loch Ness

Finally we are moving! We left Inverness in the morning and were breezing through the locks. At one lock I was speaking with the girl operator and realized that she is not Scottish but English, by how easy it was to understand her.

 

Then we entered Loch Ness. The captain let me to steer the ship for a while and it felt great to do that again.

 

In the evening we arrived at Fort Augustus where we spent the night.

 

Though it was raining we went for a sightseeing tour, where we saw mostly rabbits.

 

We came back for dinner, then went out to pubs. The crew went to The Botchy while we were stuck with Lock Inn. But we didn't like the smell so we went back to the ship. I put my swimming suit on and went for a dip in Loch Ness (but only up to the ankles). The others, being Norwegian, went for a swim in Loch Ness by jumping from the ship.
