Last night I retired without finishing off, it was 22:00 and I was pure wrecked, the normal relaxing Sunday had been a hectic scramble up and down ladders accepting alarms, resetting breakers and rebooting servers. It was a pretty wild day to boot and borderline whether or not we sailed at 16:00
that’ll be a gust of 63.9knts whilst we were tied alongside yesterday afternoon!! That’s ‘violent storm 11’ just .1 of a knot short of an official hurricane!! Of course it wasn’t a constant wind so the sea never really built up but one of the squalls that hit us must have been approaching 90knts. Like I said yesterday I forgot my camera but picture never do the weather justice anyway. However, my shipmate Finlay spotted what could only be described as a tornado heading straight out of the mouth of Loch Sligachan bound for us
so we went outside to meet it! Well, it took our breath, nearly knocked us off our feet and went charging up the edge of the pier to make landfall near the boatshed. Once there it moved a heavy four wheeled galvanized plant trailer sideways before going onto move several large and heavily weighted down sheets of play across the road and into a field.
A little different today hey
yup, Monday was a ‘pure peach’ of a day.
Funny how a little sunshine can very quickly make you forget just how bad the previous day actually was.
Twas even a good day to be a fish farmer
Pretty poor effort I know, but hey it’s my last full day at work today, tomorrow I finish for a whole month of croft, house, pig, hen and Land Rover work.
