We have had a fantastic holiday in Denmark but the weather on our return, contrived to keep us away from Rona, full story tomorrow. In the meantime it has been a day of catching up, washing, dodging heavy rain and just returning to normal.
Our first surprise on our return was the new Porch.
The New Porche
Our relief crew were very busy, more on our last two weeks and the porch after the new visitors hopefully arrive tomorrow.
About Bill Cowie
I've been living on the island since April 2002, alone for the first 5 years, my partner L joined me in 2007. We manage the Island for a Danish family who bought the Island in the early 90's.
Their hopes for the Island are to make it self sufficient supporting its inhabitants and that is where we come in.
We look after the stock, 3 holiday cottages, machinery, boat and of course the visitors.
It is pretty challenging but it is a beautiful place to live and work, we love it and strangely enough we love it even more in the depths of winter when all is quiet apart from the gales and rain.
We do a bit of fishing, stock work, stalking deer and loads of other stuff. We have good support from lots of people whom we have met over the years and have become involved in the Island. Too many to mention here but keep an eye on the blog, they'll be there for sure in the future.
