Finally returned (! ) after a series of successful trips to various places at home and abroad, of which I will post some separate details later.
Apparently the weather on Islay during the last three weeks has been very dry and , already, some difficulties are being experienced with water supplies where individual sources are involved. True to form it rained virtually the whole way on my way northwards to the ferry terminal but then cleared as we reached Islay. A couple of Basking Sharks off the south coast of Islay were relatively close and seen well.
Pleased to be back!
