After a very wet night, the sun is starting to peek through the clouds. No, we did not have any strong winds to speak of, being at the centre of the low pressure system that wreaked devastation across northern England and Wales. Things did brighten up in the afternoon, but we never lost the showers. Could have been so much worse, though. The freight ferry, MV Hebridean Isles, is back on duty, and went out with a load of trucks at around 1pm.
