So John said in Escape as we got it ready for our new guests arriving ‘hopefully’ tomorrow (Saturday), more later about that.
They say every picture tells a story, well it was just a mouthful after I filled the wee decanter of whisky we leave in each house and it was a grim day of weather anyway. So a wee cheer up!!
Yesterday (Thursday) was something else, 60 mph gusts, streams appearing where we had not seen streams before. We had to shutter up the summer house like it was expecting ‘Hurricane Katrina’. Although it is pretty sheltered from the worst wind direction.
We got some inside winter work done, mainly painting. But the sea did not inspire us for a ferry trip on Friday or Saturday .
What a change in the weather after our trip to Portree Wednesday to collect some material. it was a really lovely day but once out on the sea we could feel the weather building for the rest of the week. It was a wet sail and that was not so good with OSB board and windows on board.
We had been in Portree delivering venison to some of our customers to make room for the next batch, we picked up the mail and found the new camera bought on ebay for £75.00 and it is brand new in the bag, at that price I thought it worth a punt and I’m not disappointed. A Lumix GF2 the next model up from my current day to day camera.
Also in the mail was a tenner from Yacht Ocean Lord who could not get ashore to pay, thank you to them and much appreciated.
We tried to get our guests over tonight Friday, but failed as the sea and wind did not calm down and tomorrow looks difficult too. Also two of our guests are intending to kayak over, bizarrely enough they might make it but Spindrift may not, we’ll keep you posted.
