Friday 5 October

After a morning agonising over my missing luggage, it finally turned up by taxi from the airport at 2pm. The tags on it suggested that it never left Schiphol with me, and only my query at Stornoway served to get it to me. It had come via Aberdeen to Stornoway on the Eastern Airways service that gets in here just before 2pm. All was present and correct. Spent the rest of the day catching up with pics and GPS trails. Nights are closing in now, it's getting dark before 7 o'clock. At the end of the month, the clocks will go back, leaving us with darkness at 5pm.

During the afternoon, someone was spotted walking down to the tideline in the basin across the road with a canoe. They put it into the water and proceeded to paddle away at a rate of knots. Unusual. It was low tide at that point, but fortunately we're at neap tide, meaning the low tide is not very low.

  1. So glad you got the luggage and everything was ok. That is good news for sure! The sun sets here about the same and I miss the longer daylight hours already. I can barely stay awake past nine. I'm very affected by the lack of sunshine. It'll be worse when the time changes. Beautiful pictures in your post today.

  2. Welcome back. And wonderful pics to boot. Hope your holiday was restful. Looking forward to some autumn and winter views of Lewis as we head into a horrible sizzling summer over here.

  3. Glad you got your luggage back. That had to have been irritating.
