I attended my first Camanachd Cup Final on Saturday and what a great afternoon it was.

From babes in arms to grannies and grandads and everyone in between, the sun shone on the crowd and the atmosphere at Mossfield was amazing.

It definitely won’t be the last game I attend, although I think I may be a fair weather supporter. With two nephews playing, I’m sure next summer will provide plenty of opportunities to further my knowledge of the game.

Monday was a busy day too with the Silver Spirit cruise ship coming to Oban. I had an  early start to be down and ready to greet the first tender from the ship at 8am.

It was a quiet ship with only 111 passengers aboard but the ones who came ashore were delightful and really happy to be here, especially as the weather improved and the mist lifted allowing them to see where they were.

This was our last scheduled ship for this year but I’ve heard bookings for the next two years are very good which is definitely something to look forward to.

This weekend we have Oban Pride brightening up the town. Have a look at their Facebook page to find out what’s happening.

I’ve already got my free tickets for events in the Phoenix Cinema and I’m planning to drop in for tea and cake at Argyll Wellbeing Hub. It’s going to be great fun as well as a great organisation to support. I really hope some of the shops will be decorating their windows in support. Our wee office window will certainly be flying the flag for Oban Pride.

Last week’s photograph was of one of the lovely flower tubs at Cuan Mor. This week’s photograph is much more difficult. I’ll give you a clue, it’s near the water.
