Wednesday 26 June

At midday, I had to take a double take when the ferry appeared in view. Summer is here: it's Wednesday and the ferry does three sailings today (similarly on Friday). She won't finish for the day until about 2 am...
A French fishing boat came into Stornoway this morning for a crew change. The fresh crew are flown in from France, and the old crew go back on the return flight. The process in Stornoway harbour only takes 90 minutes.

By evening, the greyness of the sky matched the greyness of the sea - I called it a grey-out.
