Monday 5 September

Quite a boisterous day, in that there were beafy downpours and twisters reportedly trying to come down from shower clouds over the centre of the island. There was not much wind at groundlevel, which brought out the midges (scratch, scratch).

Next week, the Lewis Chessmen [Facebook link] will be back near the location where they were found back in 1831. It is their first revisit in 11 years, and there will only be a small selection of the figurines that will make it to Timsgarry, across the bay from Ardroil. The debate as to the provenance of their makers continues to rage.

Community Photo Challenge - Reflections

As Donna said, it's been a while since I took part in any of those, but you see my contribution above. Boats on the slipway on a windless day.  Contribution to the Community Photo Challenge.
