Wednesday 17 June

Showery weather today, and in the last half hour or so there were two rainbows. One ended over the lighthouse, so the lady that lives in the Keeper's Cottage should have had a very good evening. The sun is currently out (else no rainbow).

Very bad news for the Western Isles economy, particularly for the Uists (60 miles south of here). The rocket range at South Uist and Benbecula will shed 125 jobs, which is a harsh blow to the community of 5,000. Efforts are underway to minimise the impact, but savings of £50m appear to be the driving force behind the economies.

As I type, the rainbow is back, slowly moving towards the Fabrication Yard. They could do with a crock of gold. They're forever going bust.

  1. I guess the pot of gold found with the rainbow is in the eye of the beholder. They are such a wonderful sight to see.
