Post #3000 on this blog

Very windy today, and with some showers blown along on the wind. Temperature on a downward trend, at times only 12C / 54F. Nonetheless, we headed out for Ness and walked from Suainebost along the coast to Eoropie. This involved detouring by the memorial to the Cunndal sinkings of 1885, and round the far northwestern headland before making for the lighthouse. Eoropie Tearoom was unfortunately closed. The bus back to Stornoway was 15 minutes late taking us back. Upon passing the primary school at Laxdale, a dark-blue car was sitting at an odd angle in the carpark, with a downed lamppost and churned up flower border around it. It later transpired that the elderly driver had died in the crash.
