Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day - the last day before Lent in the Roman Catholic and Anglican Churches. It was the day that Pope Francis was revealed to have mispronounced a word in Italian (his first language is Spanish), making it sound like the F-word.
A day of varying fortunes in terms of cloud cover. Tomorrow will be less favourable, and I won't be able to make it to the open day for the Isle of Harris Distillery. This is due to be built on the foreshore at Tarbert. It will be the second distillery on the landmass that is Lewis and Harris, the first being the Abhainn Dearg [Red River] distillery at Carnish, Uig in Lewis.
Although the day started out cloudy, we had a bright interlude until about 3pm. That is when the cloud cover increased rapidly, to be followed by rain at 4pm.
