This is Harold Jager's journal of his holiday on Pandora in August 1946 at the age of 69, sailing from Tayvallich up the west coast of Scotland as far as Loch Hourn.
He wrote daily during the journey and typed it up when he returned home. This was a happy time for him, visiting places that clearly meant much to him in the company of people with whom he was very much at ease.
He was nicknamed the Cat, and every now and then he intersperses his account with imaginary conversations with his alter ego Grimalkin. These mostly occur after he has got rather carried away with a particularly vivid description of his surroundings.
