Monday 28 July

The fog took until 5pm to clear, after which we had a brilliant evening. Sunset at 9.45pm, meaning we've already lost 50 minutes since the summer solstice. The normal ferry is covering for the freight ferry, which is in dry-dock in Aberdeen for repairs.

Both cruiseliners left at or before lunchtime. I only got very foggy images of both of them, a pity, as I had not previously seen them here in Stornoway before. The fog also put paid to the delivery of newspapers, which failed to appear in the shops today (as far as I know).

  5. There are a lot of days like that in the higher elevations of the Great Smoky Mountains.  When the fog clears out, doesn't the day seem brighter!

  6. Oh dear what a shame about the fog..It wouldn't be very nice for the folks on teh cruise liners either...We had another hot sunny day altough quite a fierce thunderstorm mid aftrenoon had Dee the dog running around as if he has been shot !! It always amazes me how much longer light it is in Scotland to down here I even noticed it in Edinburgh. Last night it was quite dark by 10.  Love for now  Sybil x

  7. The fog must have been just awful.  When we cruised to Nova Scotia we were in fog the entire journey....it was horrible, you couldn't see five feet beyond the ship. And the fog horns...ugh, it was torture as they blew every few minutes! I realize they were needed for our safety though.  I don't envy those on the cruise ships sailing in that kind of fog.
