Badger arrives at Broughty Harbour to disembark the first passengers

The first Options in Life group boarded Badger at Woodhaven to enable them to get a look at the Tay Rail Bridge which was of particular interest to them following a recent study they’d made of the Tay Rail Bridge disaster.
They then came through the Road Bridge and along the North shore of the Tay to give them a good look at the Docks and the Dundee foreshore along to Broughty Ferry for a quick look at the lifeboat before coming alongside in Broughty Ferry Harbour.

It was meant to be a “High 5” but Bob (on the right) attempts to give a paw instead.

The second group boarded Badger here at Broughty Ferry after their friends came onshore –  and by way of complete contrast, they went out to the vicinity of the Horseshoe Buoy off Tentsmuir Forset to see all the dolphins.

….as arranged, the dolphins were ready and waiting. This costs us a fortune in tins of tuna (dolphin friendly) but it’s worth it really.
