Along the Pentland Road, 25 May 2017

Wednesday 5 November

MV Loch Seaforth is now headed northwest along the south coast of Norway. She is currently 30 miles west of Egersund, and I'm expecting her to turn west off Stavanger to commence the North Sea crossing towards the Pentland Firth. She will just about dodge tomorrow's high winds, until she is south of Stornoway.

Power went off at around 5.15, and came back on at 6.25. The whole town was dark, as the Battery Point powerstation went off. A few emergency lights here and there - otherwise utter darkness. The arc lights at the ferry terminal works only exacerbated things, and I nearly ran into someone walking the other way when I nipped round to Tesco to see what was doing there. Emergency lights, but all the customers had been sent away.
