Not Quite The Full Moon

Almost, but not quite. The next full moon is on Tuesday 11th April. So Saturday’s moon was not quite the full moon. At midnight the moon appeared so bright.

Flavour of the Month

April the First. Sunshine and April Showers. Today we have received the flavour of the month. When this morning’s flight flew overhead there was low cloud.

It’s hard to believe the complete transformation! We woke up to the sound of silence. No howling gale, just stillness. Monday 3:00pm and we are in the midst of a storm. Winds on the island were gusting to 70mph. The sea around the island was in turmoil. The car was being rocked by the wind. And the […]
