A mixture of weather conditions over the past few days, not unusual for this time of year. But what was unusual was the downpour of hailstorms making for a frosty few moments if you were caught outside in it.
Thankfully that didn't last long but it was a sharp reminder of what is to come. The local weather forecast has predicted an Artic blast from Norway with temperatures of minus 10 degrees. I hope they are wrong. Not good news...We also wait with abated breath for the new announcement from the government to stop the spread of this terrible pandemic. There is talk of a 3 tier approach but time will tell. We had been hoping to see the family but it is not looking good. There are some places in England that have more hospitalization that prior to the March lockdown so things are not getting any better. We will know soon enough what the new rules will be.
On a lighter note we are just back from our walk, this time to the Port of Ness. We are surrounded by beauty so it is not hard to find something beautiful and positive to share with you. Walking down to the Port was easy but I must admit I was a little breathless walking back up. It was worth the effort.
Teresa this is the Port and the boatshed mentioned in the Peter May books.
The tide was coming in so it was a delight to see the boats bobbing about in the water. It was strange walking down the slope to be able to see both the inner water of the harbour and the outer wall to the sea. It certainly made quite the sight.
It was nice to take a stroll and let the wind blow the cobwebs and worries away. Another beautiful day and a lot to be thankful for.
The steps lead up to an Art Gallery and to the Beachcomber Cafe and Restaurant, which is a wonderful place to eat. The fresh air certainly did us both good and lifted the spirits. Standing at the Port looking out over the sea was stunning. Each time we visit these little coves and inlets it reminds us of the family visiting and the fun we had together. We have our treasured memories and that is what keeps us going for now.
Stay strong dear friends, look for the positive. As always I do thank you for your visit here and hope you found something to enjoy.
See you soon.
