Sometimes the weather is just bad. It’s raining cats and dogs. But the boat still comes out and we will be there to meet it. On a particularly rainy day it was not looking promising. It had rained all day. It was so bad we stood in the bar on the boat and I did the usual talk. To be fair the weather did not dampen the enthusiasm of visitors. Off they went in their various directions. I stayed on the boat and had a coffee with the crew. I set off eventually with it still raining. I headed for the main light and as I walked up Palputation Brae the rain stopped.
A strange mist rose from all around
Do you see the crock of gold at the end of the rainbow? (or a group of non english speakers off the path. Grrr)
The island was bathed in sunshine as the May Princess left. And yes I did use the old joke ‘we arrange the weather’ to every visitor I saw!
On average we get 40% less rain then the mainland. We have suffered with a water shotage this summer. Many days we’ve looked back towards Anstruther with dark clouds above while we are in bright sunshine. One of those stange phenomina of being an island.
