Sunday 19 May

The day started out foggy, but the cloud very, very slowly lifted off the Arnish hills and after lunchtime, the sun came out. It wasn't exactly warm, 13C, but out of the wind and in the sun it did feel warm enough. I went for a walk around the harbour, and was quietly astonished at the level of activity around the fishingboats. Nets being dried, moorings being adjusted, repairs carried out etc. An unusual boat, the Juvel II, was also in port; she is registered in St Kitts & Nevis, one of the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean. It being Sunday, the town centre was deserted. Only the odd walker, like myself, was ambling about.
