The day of the storm!
|The sun was shrouded in cloud as the promised storm approached|
|The waves built up around the skerries|
|"Cat's paws" |
Wind and waves flicker in the bay as the wind rushes over the house and swirls down to the beach,
as it blows the waves back the way they have come it makes patterns that look like "cat's paws".
|The following morning the waves were as big as bungalows, |
Nick was tempted to get his kayak out...
I remember Corryvrechan and the Grey dogs and was not!
Back To Work!
|Donald has been coming regularly to check the scaffolding is safe and that we haven't moved any! Apart from the obvious safety aspect, our liability insurance and his demands it!|
|So the scaffolding is rearranged, hopefully for the last time.|
...and Nick is back up there sealing windows!
...in the rain.
However he did come to Laphroaig with me today for a little Christmas "spirit" and cheer!
|Meanwhile someone got left on the doorstep!|
|OK! So Jenny was right after all, Tammy was the wrong name!|
|So Nick, Rick and I sat down with Topsy and a glass of red wine....|
She has a long line of stars on her chest, so it's
after the star constellation Cassiopeia
|Cassie is already herding Bertie and the hens |
She sits and stays when she's told...
|...but however hard Cassie tries, Islay still says no!|
