    It was a quiet night on the harbour. After breakfast we walked on the beach with Logan, he was very wound up by all the local cats, sometimes he's like a dog possessed!
    Before setting out for the day, we enjoyed coffee sat out on a bench on the harbour side.

Back at sea level we looked at the large pile of snow on the roof, it's a wonder it didn't cause any damage.

From the fortress you can see the old ...

    ... known us a while will know about our trip to Lauterbrunen in Switzerland in the summer of 2005. http://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/floods-and- landslides-cut-off-alpine-villages/4686 902. It isn't as bad as Switzerland but we will stay here until it's passed, we don't want any landslides hitting us! We read our books most of the afternoon as the electricity came on and went off again several times. At tea time catering made some flapjack, comfort food! Whilst we continue to sit the storm ...
