A lovely fresh day it’s been here on ‘the triangle’,
though these days it only actually does the full ‘triangle’ of Tarbert, Lochmaddy, Uig on Sunday, the rest of the week it alternates between the two throughout the day. Though don’t quote me on this, most of my time is spent in the Control room below the waterline viewing the outside world through two TV screens in air conditioned ambivalence to the elements Best check here for more reliable info http://www.calmac.co.uk/timetables/calmac-winter-timetables.htm
Whilst most of my day was spent in the engine room, control room and various other machinery spaces I did manage a few glimpses of the outside world.
This being somewhere off the south of Harris as we approached Tarbert, no we’re not that close to the shore, it’s at 32x zoom
And I could do with a little help on this one taken a few miles out of Uig and looking north or north west, again a long way off but methinks its Trodday and Fladdah Chuinn none of which I can confirm or spell. For it is now 13:00, I’m on my lunch break and have no internet somewhere half an hour out of Uig. Me having started writing this post at 20:00 last night in Tarbert Harris and given up about an hour later because my eyes were killing me
I thwacked my eye on Sunday with a twig and it’s been kind of sore but I don’t think the air conditioning helps because both eyes were sore, as soon as I step outside it’s fine but staring at a computer screen was doing me no favours.
So I gave up the luxury of the MV Finlaggan’s ‘Quiet lounge’
at just after 21:00 and went to my bed. It may well be quiet at sea but in harbour with the engines shut down and just the crew on board it’s far from silent it with a constant whirr of the air conditioning Hardly a major gripe, as it’s the only complaint I have about this excellent ship
Kilmuir in the north of Skye where Rocky our boar visited on a couple of occasions to go and service some sows, as you can see not much in the way of the trees he was used to
Can’t remember the name of this lump on the way into Uig but its quite something.
Here we have Uig pier
and the rest of the ferry terminal.
Well I never finished the post (yet again) and it’s been sitting here on my hard drive for 36 fours, so you might as well see it Sorry it’s a bit lame but there’s a lot going on just now.
