It's been a while since I've been online. Life has gotten a bit real over the last few years.It's been nearly 4 years since I moved to the Scottish Highlands intending to only stay for one month before following my dream of joining the Merchant Navy and completing a cadetship.Well ...my plans changed !I stayed & I regret nothing.I have lived a million times more than I ever would have if I had of left here.

I've spent nearly 4 years working as a Bosun onboard a 200- Tonne luxe moter barge in the Caledonian canal for Caledonian Discovery www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&… . We get 12 new guests every week from Australia to Canada ..to Bermuda ! I truely understand the meaning of hard work , friendship and percistance .

Also I spent 8 months working as a ski lift operator in a remote ski resort called Nevis Range .

I lost my Dad to cancer , it was a painful experience which still hasn't sunk in fully yet and I doubt it ever will .For someone who fought 16 years through the illness to suddenly be on two weeks notice ...somethings hurt too much to accept.Watching a loved one dissapear infrount of your eyes is a torture no-one deserves to go through.When I left to work in the Highlands , little was I to know this was the last time I would speak to my Dad.

Learning to live again after saying goodbye to my one and only hero has not been easy and continues to be a day by day battle even a year on.I find theres so many things only my dad would understand ;so many unspoken conversations & questions.

On the brighter side of life im now doing MCA Boatmaster training (Skipper training).I think I've truely found a place that feels like home ...think I might just stay a bit longer !

I should upload a few more recent photos and be a bit more online as I am shorebased for next 3 months =D

I love the sea in all aspects , especially the adventure and mysery to evolves around it .Although boats are my love and insperation in life!

I am scottish & believe in and fully support Scottish indepence from the union , I live and breathe Scotland .I speak some Gaelic (only a few phrases ! but wish to learn more but its not exactly a common class/course)

I go onboard the waverley during the summer and am a member of the psps and ypw www.y-p-w.co.uk/ ypw .

I went to James watt college in Greenock , I studied intermediate maths ,spanish,psycholgy,chemistry and int 2 and higher english. Im planning to do a deck officer cadetship and to train at Shetland and to work deep sea.

I take alot of waterscape/landscape photos and am trying to teach myself more about photography and find insperation from artisits worldwide with opposing views on what art is.

I sail as a volunteer Bosun with OYTS (Ocean Youth Trust Scotland) and do dinghy sailing also do a fair deal of swimming .Like to have a laugh with people who can have a good sense of humour and dont take life too seriously.
