Afternoon notes

Brilliantly sunny afternoon, with a bank of distant high cloud to the southeast. We are threatened with severe gales, and there is this ominous lump of cloud out in the Atlantic. We shall see.

Just found a solution, of sorts, for my problem with Whenever I add a set, the site would freeze when using Firefox. So, I removed Firefox from the PC and reinstalled it. Seems to have worked, I now get warnings that a Javascript is not responding. Bearing in mind that I have in excess of 300 sets on Flickr, that is no surprise. Just a flipping nuisance.

The picture beside this post shows the interior of Lewis, along the Grimersta River. Not been there for about 4 years or so. The spot shown is reached relatively easily, using one's own legs after leaving the B8011 road just past the Great Bernera turn-off. The only fly in the ointment comes a few miles further south, when you have to cross two rivers. And there ain't no bridges. Click on the location link to find out exactly where this pic was taken.


  1. so it's a good idea to go sight seeing in the summer when you won't freeze your butt off crossing the rivers, huh?! :-p

  2. Amy,
    I think I prefer my butt freezing off to being eaten alive by midges :-P

  3. Guido, that is a beautiful spot and picture. I am still toying with the idea of visiting your area. Really wish I could make the trip, Bill
