A very breezy day, with the wind blowing at force 5 to 6. A fishingboat had to be towed to safety by the lifeboat after losing power near Goat Island. Without assistance, the boat would have drifted onto the ferry pier, according to the Press & Journal. In the afternoon, I went to Sandwick Cemetery to photograph one particular grave momument - one that stands 8 feet tall. I previously only pictured the section that referred to a war casualty. The graveyard had recently been mowed, which made it look nice and tidy. Many of the gravestones are losing the legibility of their inscriptions. Back here in town, a gardening company has filled some of the tubs with nice flowers.
By the way, I prefer Stornoway's 19C to the 35C that my father is "enjoying" down in Holland.
Flowery boat, Newton
