After last week’s sunshine the forecast was not promising.
Thankfully the day has much improved as it has gone on.
First thing it looked as it it might rain all day.
When we set out to meet with the church family at An Talla (Crossapol)
the car’s windscreen wipers were certainly kept busy.
Looking to the north west the sky was black
but to the west the sun was shining;
and reflected by the white houses.
It was a morning and afternoon of showers.
At one point in the afternoon we had a hail shower.
There was no doubting the sound of the hail battering the windows.
Late afternoon the sun turned the sky blue.
It was time to go for a walk without the worry of being soaked.
The intense showers can soak a person through in a matter of moments.
So we headed first to the pier – it sounds like a Sunday afternoon promenade.
We retraced our steps and crossed the Machair to Scarinish Harbour and Lighthouse.
After a walk around the township we headed back.
Crossing the sand at the harbour the sun was going down.
The setting sun transformed the sky, sea, township and harbour.
Soon darkness will descend.
It has been a good late afternoon and evening.
So it is time to say, “Goodnight from ‘Life on Tiree’.”
