Saturday 25 May

Overcast and increasingly wet today. The day started at 10 o'clock with the passage of the 2013 Stornoway Half Marathon at the 2-mile point, where I was positioned for the purpose of taking pics. There was a largish field of competitors. The winner completed the circuit in 1 hour 14 minutes and 58 seconds.

Quite a bright day, with lovely cloudscapes of high-level clouds - a harbinger of doom. Dread tomorrow's weather, which is forecast to be deteriorating to rain. Went into town where resurfacing work creating a mini-traffic jam on South Beach, one of the main thoroughfares. It quickly dissolved though. Our freight ferry was very late coming in: 5.30pm, as opposed to 8 am usually. And at 10pm, the supermoon rose, rather larger than normal due to its closeness to the earth.
