It’s gonna be a pretty lame effort I’m afraid , the shift 12 days in with only 2 to go but it’s been a hard one and I just plain can’t wait to start my months holiday So without further ado and with very little inn the way of explanation here’s some pictures of what may well be the latest summer ever!
A rare sight indeed, not just a yacht moored in Loch Arnish but one displaying the correct ‘day shape’ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Day_shapes a single black ball ‘I’m at anchor’.
Silage at last, about a month late!
An early morning mist in Portree.
A ‘wee dug’ glad to see her master, so glad she tries to bite off his leg every time he gets home from work.
Hardly does it justice but that was a truly amazing sight, the sun immediately behind the Land Rover casting a rainbow halo around a shadow, onto a carpet of fog in the Sound of Raasay.
Here’s the rest of the fog
and here’s what it looks like tonight.
The same ‘misty morn’ from Glame looking towards the Cuilins,
and ‘burnt off’ just half an hour later.

Portree Lifeboat ‘Stanley Watson Barker’ passing by Jackal Rock on the way to Applecross on Friday night.
Friday night and Norman busy on the gable, I’m not saying he’s a grafter but I was wakened by the cement mixer at 5:30 am on Saturday
Oskaig silage on Saturday morning
and the last ‘daylight’ Saturday sailing of the year, at least for me, by the time I return from holiday it’ll be dark long before 21:00.
Tonight’s view from the living room of Sonas.
