    ... and then pointed to us. We were IN! The hour's crossing was spent in the boat's comfy lounge talking to the man and his daughter in the seats facing us. Mr. Armstrong was a dairy farmer from southern Scotland, going to Orkney with his daughter. We all talked about our travels (the daughter and her brother had both been to the U.S.) and about the economics of farming in the European Union.
