Bright day, but with a lot of high cloud about. Getting warm (by our standards), with the mercury up to 15C at midday. A cruiseliner has come and gone; the MV Island Sky entered port at 7 in the morning, and left about an hour ago. It was due to visit North Rona (70 miles northeast of here) at 7 am, but the weather appears to have been unfavourable at the time. A Twitter contact in North Lewis reported lashing rain at the time.
Anyone on Twitter who wishes to express solidarity with those in Iran who oppose the allegedly rigged election of president Ahmadinajad should adopt a green icon. My icon is green, showing the cat on a grassy backdrop.
