We reached the mouth of the Allt Eilagadale before turning back, a gentle walk in warm, dry weather. The Ockle to Gortenfern coastline is spectacular, and it doesn't matter how often we explore it, we enjoy it more each time.
Ockle Holidays has three houses to let at Ockle - details here.

here, but that does't mean it's easy to identify one moth, like this one, out of the hundreds that are flittering around the place. This is one of the many small moths that can be seen amongst the heather on a warm day. They're mostly about 15mm across, and have very erratic flight paths, seeming to specialise in crashing into foliage rather than landing on it.

Our first stop was at one of the brackish pools at the back of the beach, where some water boatmen provided an interest. Hebe wanted to take a picture which had the theme of 'reflections and shadows'.
After that, she found sea urchins in almost all the pools we visited.
