Oriole hiding from hurricane Lorenzo!
Posted in : Oriole
With the knowledge that we were stormbound for the day we enjoyed a lazy breakfast that turned into a full scottish breakfast complete with tattie scone and black pudding. Brian then gave a lesson on meteorology to help understand the causes of our weather we are experiencing. After lunch our guests took the local bus into town (tiny village) and managed to get a taxi to take them on a quick whirlwind tour of south harris while the crew stayed onboard to carry out routine maintenance and look after the boat. A trip out to the eastern edge of the island gave an indication of the full force of the wind and waves in the Minch and that unfortunately we will be stormbound once more tomorrow. We then all reconvened for a homemade lasagne and I hope some chocolate for dessert! Good night from a toasty warm Oriole!
