We never thought we would be happy to see rain on Rona, but rain it did to-day and hopefully that will keep the dust down and the plants get a much needed natural watering.
The weather has changed for the weekend and as it was spitting, grey and breezy it was decided that a catch up on paperwork, calls and emails was the best job to-day.
Unfortunately tomorrow is the same and there is a chance the guests will be stranded, first time this year on a Saturday but if it is blowing too hard from the North, then we fear it will be Sunday, hopefully not Monday.
Mid morning Yacht Rusty left, we did see the crew coming ashore at 10.30pm last night. We thought they were heading to the top of the hill for the sunset.
You can see in the foreground the dead grass where the lack of water has killed the thin soil areas and there are loads on Rona. Looks like the yacht has had a wet time though, there are plenty rusty streaks.
Had a call from Portree to-day letting us know there was 200 dolphins heading our way, but we’d had enough sailing yesterday, I’m sure we’ll see them before the end of the summer.
Not much to report this evening, it was nice to have a more relaxed day though, fingers crossed for the ferry tomorrow
