It was a good day to-day, probably the last for a wee while but nice to have such a calm spell. Always welcome in December.
I was up early after a weekend of generator woes.
Headed down the ‘Sound’ at first light, porpoises popping up which was a surprise, there was a wee jabble and a big swell, a sign of what is coming. 40 minutes later I was in Portree and it was -1.I defrosted the car thanks to Angus the Harbour Master and set about the shopping list, being careful to avoid the horrible Traffic Wardens of Somerled Sq. Picked up Mike and Lorraine who are over to help us for a week. Loaded with some fuel (and their hens!!!) then back to Rona.A bigger lift on the way back but a good sail, sun splitting the sky, I was chatting to Calum about power issues most of the way back. As we came to the top of Raasay we did see stags on the Ailean Tighe shore and on the tops of Rona but not a lot of sealife on the return.Back into the harbour and the tide was perfect for a drop off at the landing stage we built for the landing craft. Saves walking up and down the gangway. But we had the fuel to lift of with the JCB, so just perfect.Over to Dry Harbour at last light to check on the cottages and generator shed, the views as usual never disappoint.
Roll on tomorrow, Firewood!!
Here are a few Sunsets from the last while.
