We have anchored off Belfast and its a lovely town which is very much alive and industrious. We have met lots of interesting people and will stay here for a few days to soak the place up.

This morning we went for a five mile walk up the estuary and at times it was as if we were back home Cornwall.

From Perry Cove we launched the dinghy and bombed over to North Haven for the best Pizza we have ever eaten and to enjoy the live street music thanks to a Community Day.

On the shore side is this rather splendid house based on an old ship

My morning paddle took me right up to the head of Perry Cove where I ended up in a little ravine which had some lovely ferns growing on the rock face.

We are now in Perry Cove which as you can see from the picture is very protected and rather lovely. We have had a relaxing day ticking off lots of little jobs and generally pottering about. We like it here.

The date night was kicked off with sundowners and an amazing display of seamanship as a couple of Wind Jammers made their way into the packed harbour and anchored up beside us, all under full sail. Quite thrilling.

Camdens night of the long knives needed to be offset and so I decided a date night was in order. A local Lobsterman sold me live and my first foray into BBQ Lobster proved to be a winner.

Our last night in Camden was one of our worst this trip so far in that the wind backed further than forecast and we endured a sleepless night as we rolled about in random but nasty harbour slop. That morning we decided to head for the safe anchorage of Pulpit Harbour once the fog had lifted enough for comfort. On leaving for the seven mile trip the gods unleashed torrential rain, fog and winds of up to thirty knots which made it interesting. Pearl, as ever, pushed it all aside with a robust and stable shoulder and delivered us into a perfect tranquil anchorage. It was quite extraordinary for gods had lost interest in their game, turned off the wind, turned on the sun and went on to toy with others.

The entrance is dominated by Pulpit rock which has a famous and sprawling Osprey nest. Osprey return annually adding more sticks to the pile for the next generation. A nest just up the coast was carbon dated to find that the original sticks were laid down 125 years ago!
