Popped over to the Gareloch as it was rumoured we may see some activity prior to the Joint Warrior military exercise.
The tanker 'Excello' was discharging fuel - in preparation for the warships that would refuel before leaving for the exercise.
Two minesweepers arrived and made their way up the Gareloch to Faslane.
Although dry and very sunny I was just about blown off my feet with the strong wind.
Mission accomplished I headed home knowing I would be returning soon for more arrivals.
