Thursday 3 May

Today saw a change in the weather, in that we lost the sun. There were a few spells of light rain in late afternoon and early evening and a steady north wind. Spent most of the afternoon uploading the 156 pictures I took yesterday, and putting them on the preceding blogpost. By early evening, my eye caught two craft approaching port at high speed, and one of them looked like our lifeboat. The other looked like the new lifeboat that is being based at Leverburgh, South Harris. I hurried out to Goat Island, in time to see the two lifeboats coming into the harbour. The Lifetime Care was welcomed into its homeport, Leverburgh, yesterday.
