Good Day, bad end

... had just gone below and were settling down to watch an episode of Hinterland when the wind suddenly appeared and the temperature fell off a cliff, it was quite remarkable. We decided there and then to put the cockpit cover on, not that easy with the wind howling and all about us there were crews furiously working to protect their boats from the onslaught of the suddenly inclement weather. By 22:00 it was really quite chill and the wind was howling, such a dramatic ...

A travel blog entry by derek_roberts10


... blue water, all interspersed with immaculate houses and cabins dotted about, mostly painted a rufousy/sienna colour (I can’t tell you how long, with a poor internet signal, it took me to have a stab at that!) – anyway, it was beautiful and a real taster of what was to come over the next few weeks, we hope.
