Been a while but we are back. A very busy weeks ‘holiday’ enjoying Gloucester Royal Infirmary, unfortunately and the snow chaos down South. Coupled with reports from Rona of beautiful winter days!!! Thanks Mike and Lorraine!!
It was good to get away but good to be back, even on a night where the wind is trying to rip the house from its foundations, goodness knows what is happening outside but it doesn’t sound too good.
To-day we were amazed to see a small boat at the mouth of the harbour, we think it was a dive boat but the weather was nuts, they were very hardy or foolish. Half an hour after we saw them it really took off so where ever they were going it was going to be a tough trip.
Back to Rona! The first night back we enjoyed the winter sun and company of Mike and lorraine who had looked after the Island a big thank you to them.
We did enjoy a bit of winter sunshine and dry weather, so did the stock.
For a couple of days it was very calm and the views were very clear but all too soon the weather started to change.
So a quick dash with a bit of outside work and then all too soon our guests were going away. We had a burns supper and the crew of the MV Spindrift joined us. It was a lovely lunch time in good company but even then the wind was starting to blow.
The ‘wee timorous beastie’ is not real!!!!
Since then the weather has steadily deteriorated and tonight is a beauty, goodness knows what I will get when I step outside tomorrow. The house is shaking and when the rain comes the noise it quite incredible, we are watching the glass panes in the windows bending!!!!!
It is a good time of year to update the web site and play with the features on WordPress and tonight I thought I’d try and put in a gallery so if you look at the Wildlife sightings you’ll see a series of photos taken quite a while back but never the less quite a sight!!
