Thursday 4 July

A blustery west wind blowing in short sharp showers. Bright sunshine in between and relatively mild temperatures at 15C / 59F.

The on-going saga surrounding the interconnector now sees our MP intervening, calling for an end to the 'ping-pong' politics, is it going to happen or not. I couldn't agree more. But my gut feeling is that the i/c will never happen. It'll just take some time to never happen.

This evening, I was able to use a bicycle around Stornoway for the very first time during my 9 year stint in this island. I rode it through the town centre, up Macaulay Road, down Perceval Road to Plasterfield and Sandwick, to return along the shore path. The ride served to highlight that Stornoway is a very hilly town.
