Well, that’s our Internet back up and running thanks to Sean at Applenet http://www.applecrosscommunitycompany.org/index.asp?pageid=354111 who must have snook over and fixed it whilst I wasn’t looking Smile Storm Deidre ‘took it out’ last week and I’ve been Internetless since Friday. Not an entirely bad thing as we speak to each other more and I’ve caught up on some paperwork but it is pretty handy for the weather forecast Smile OK it’s handy for a gazillion things and essential for many but to be honest when I’m working I’ve got 4g at work with me MiFi dongle so I can usually do essential stuff there. You know the really essential stuff like posting on Facecloth Smile

and it was by no means unique to Raasay, I some other cracking pictures from around Skye.

As for ‘sailors warning’ well, it was pretty fresh with a good blast of south wind hitting 40knts at times (must have been boodly windy for Sean fixing me broadband mast) but at least it was dry.

Didn’t envy Ali Bruce and his clam divers out in the Sarah right enough, methinks it was a better day for fish farming than clam diving and I’ve done both Smile

Inverlussa Marine’s very capable work boat Kiera Fiona https://www.inverlussa.com/kiera-fiona was busy at the Braes fish fish farm for most of the day along with their own land craft Bheinn Fhada

That was it really, we spent the day shuttling too and fro and I gave Bonzo his lunchtime stroll along the beach, ole Bonzo was very interested in this seaweed Smile

The last sailing was blank each way so we got tied up a few minutes early and I went to admire the Raasay Distillery ‘Cask Tree’ https://raasaydistillery.com/
