wedding celebrations aboard Loch Ness

29 June 2016, Mike and Sue get married.  As we are not at sea, they do the formal thing at the registrar’s in Inverness


to prepare the barge for the reception, we move down the wharf…

as is customary when the engineer is away, one engine decides to misbehave and the short trip along the wall takes a while (in reverse, the boat does not steer with only one engine… and to take the boat to the wedding location we need to reverse 200 meters)

Once safely at the wedding site, the gusts of wind make erecting the marquee a tricky operation

the flags go up and the caterer ‘The Billy Can’ parks a smart catering van by the marquee and unloads delicious food

it was such a happy day!

and after all the fun, the cake, the dancing, they left on their honeymoon aboard their own boat ‘Bata Beag’

anyone who can read flag signals, please tell me what the flags say on their mast.. Mike has now labelled all my flags with their alphabet letter or number, but I have not had time to learn them yet.
