And now the shipping forecast

The last couple of entries have been posted from the free internet access in the public library in Castlebay, which is located within the local secondary school. Thanks to the Comhairle nan Eilean Siar for their generosity.
The ferry should be running today; last night’s was cancelled due to the storm that broke over us in the wee smalls and no wonder. Today gave us a blue-sky morning and the opportunity to walk with the camera to Vatersay, of which more anon. Anyway, according to CalMac I should be setting sail back to Oban at 1705 this evening, to the accompaniment of the following shipping forecast:
SHANNON ROCKALL MALIN HEBRIDES CYCLONIC 5 TO 7, PERHAPS GALE 8 LATER. ROUGH OR VERY ROUGH. RAIN OR SHOWERS. MODERATE OR GOOD
Not too different to the crossing that brought me here, then.
