Monday 29 July

It seemed to have cooled down a bit, but when the sun came out this afternoon it suddenly got quite warm again. This did have a consequence though, as a line of heavy showers erupted down the west coast of the island. Some visitors got caught out in several of these downpours, and were thoroughly soaked.

This morning, I watched two cruiseliners coming in; the Marco Polo was anchored off Sandwick Bay, about half a mile away; the other sailed into port to dock at the near side of the ferry pier. This vessel, the Silver Cloud, had been in before and departed around 4pm for Belfast. The arrival and departure of the ferry Isle of Lewis created some nice photo opportunities which were duly taken by your blogger.
