Strange light in the sky.

After a week of pish the skies cleared yesterday and a most unusual light appeared in the sky. It brought warmth and has reappeared this morning. Is this to herald the shortening of the days?

I noticed a fall of yellow stuff from the sky too.
Someone said its sunshine, but I wouldn't know about that, not much experience of that for a few decades.

We're hoping to get away for a few days from tomorrow. That'll be the end of the good weather then

The weather should hold until the end of the week when I plan to set off...

I'm off to France for 2 weeks boating. I expect the weather to be poor - temps way too high, sun too fierce, too dry, no wind...

Nose now pressed against the window watching it chucking it down. :umbrella:

I blame you lot. Don't you realise you jinx it when you mention warmth or sun? I was happy drifting around yesterday watching the gannets at Ailsa Craig, popped into Twistymouthtown for a swim, read your posts an woke up to wind and rain. Stopped raining but the cloud is at mast height. Mid-bloody summer indeed!

Yesterday on Arran - it was baking. I was painting house exterior.
This morning, woke to drizzle and poor vis.
On the way over to Ardrossan to do some boat stuff the general opinion ( ie excluding S&E Englandshire) was that normal Scottish weather had resumed service, with more of the same to come.
Summer was a couple of weeks ago....?

Now in Campbeltown after a cold but pleasant sail down from Kames. Quite nice here.

Now back within the bosoom of ma family - absolutely persisting down this morning - knee deep in uncut grass and off to darkest Danelandia on Sunday so just time to scrub the knickers and socks before we go.

Well. Came skooshing up the Kilbrennan Sound yesterday after a good decision not to go either to Rathlin or Gigha. Home for a couple of days before trying again though have to be back in the Clyde on Saturday for a Saboo do.

Whilst enjoying the best holiday we've ever had, cycling the Hebridean Way, I ventured into the Kirk on the road to Castlebay on Barra for shelter from the driving rain and 40kn wind and paid my dues. I came out to a more than unusual light in the sky in these parts, the sun. I shook my head in wonder and later recounting this story to a passing friend, called sausage roll, he described my powers as supernatural and would I get intae the fekking church across the road and work the same miracle ...

I can still hear the grand sound of Karen Matheson singing Goodbye to Berneray in my ears ....
