Monday 9 July

A bright day with sunny intervals and some 1-minute spells of light rain. We have had the grand total of 9 mm of rain this month so far, whereas Edinburgh had nearly 100 mm in the same period. In other words, our drought conditions basically continue.

The main event of the day was a bit of a damp squib, with the Entrance of the Fleet consisting of barely half a dozen sailing craft assembling near the lighthouse, 45 minutes late. I was installed on Goat Island at 4pm, but there was this chilly northerly breeze and no boats. OK, to give them credit, here is my best pic.



I suppose I'm disappointed because, a year ago, we had sights like this moving up and down the harbour.
