Quieter waters...

I did a few final jobs on the dinghy today and re-rigged her. She's now ready for some ventures on the waters around Scalloway and Hamnavoe. After that a session at the gym was followed by taking Beren to Hamnavoe to see the wreck (in his head it's a pirate ship).


It has been a beautiful day today and it was amazing to see how much the sea had settled since yesterday considering it's still pretty breezy. It's wonderful to see the terns dancing over the water again too.


Hamnavoe Lighthouse in the distance looked lovely...




Beren balanced his way over the rounded boulders towards the wreck. I was as careful as possible, but I'm feeling it now...



What a difference a day makes. Apart from the obvious missing stern, you can see how much damage there is to the keel...


Quiet Waters and Atla Holm. It's bit more like quiet waters today, actually inviting waters if I'd not had Beren...


After a Sunday tea at Scalloway Youth Centre we tried to get the grass cut (a mammoth job) as it had dried out nicely, but 10ft from the end the rain started! I was tempted to race on, but Clare (the sensible one) said she'd unplug the mower. Now I've got an annoying strip of rough grass until whenever, but atleast I'm not electrocuted!


My Mam arrives tomorrow, despite the attempted delay and end of the world rapture by Grimsvotn Volcanoe errupting in Iceland. Hopefully we won't have a repeat of last years carry on and hopefully the good weather will return.

  1. You could leave a strip for nature stuff, we used to with our gardens. Grass can be so nice if left to its self, we all remember the flowing meadows. Stack a pile of logs or untreated wood in one corner.
