Friday 31 May

Went on a walk round the Castle Grounds, partly covering ground I had reconnoitered on Wednesday; the path between Strawberry Hill and the Marybank Gate. This allowed me to mark out a 4½ mile walk round the Castle Grounds, from the Creed River in the south to the Water Wheel in the north.

Thursday 30 May

Today started as sunny as yesterday, but after about 2pm the haar (or seafog) rolled ashore. This was actually quite shallow, as the sun remained visible through the cloud. However, visibility was severely restricted and familiar features like the Arnish Lighthouse, the Coastguard Station and Goat Island were lost from view.
