68 – Thursday 25th: Grr – Weather
Maddy sent me some pix of her all dolled up from her Leaver’s Ball last night …. proud of my beautiful daughter – don’t she scrub up well!
The rain cleared for a while so we could exercise, but it was still damp and chilly in the air, so our planned walk did not materialise. We drove through Lecknes, doing some basic shopping and getting rid of recycling. And onto A. yes, the town at the end of the island, really is called A. As we came over the top a mountain, the clouds parted enough for the sun to poke through to reveal the most amazing views at Reine. We, and as many motorhomes as would fit in the parking all stopped to take pix. K even got tripod and changed camera lens, so sorry quite a few of similar subjects
At A we parked up with our fellow at the museum car park … by night fall it was cheek to cheek / bumper to bumper motorhomes, but thankfully quiet from about 11.00 till 8.00. More stockfish hanging to air but heads this time. Surprising how large and ugly they are. Small fishing village pretty, but little here unless you fancy visiting the museum all about fishing, or actually going fishing. it is however, the Maelstrom Sea that when it get going, if wind and tide are in the same direction, the waves crashing on rocks can be hear d5km away. Stayed peaceful for us.
