      That is indeed an alarming sight. A reminder for us all of the essential job tugs do, and the challenging conditions they may face.

      Well, to cheer up the tug lovers, here are a couple of photos of Oxcar taken from the Forth road bridge on 4 May 2014 when she was assisting the cruise ship Discovery into Rosyth.

                            Thank you for the tug photos. I suppose if you are captain of a very maneuverable tug you can't help having fun driving backwards and in circles.

                                  Cherries are done and I took down the bird netting enclosures this morning. Blueberries will continue for another month but there is no pitting for them
