Remembrance Sunday dawns wet and miserable. A brief dry, and bright, interlude allows the 11 AM ceremonies to pass off dry. I watch the national ceremony on TV from London, in brilliant sunshine. It's 15C / 60F down there. Set to change later this week. Here in Stornoway, there are 3 services in 3 separate churches, one parade and one wreath-laying ceremony at the War Memorial. Two years ago, I was in North Uist, walking from Lochmaddy towards Berneray, but only as far as Trumisgarry, a hamlet 7 miles northwest of Lochmaddy. Saw an otter that day. [Remembrance Sunday 2004 was on 14 November]. Back to 2006. As the afternoon progresses, rain sets in, and during the evening the wind picks up to force 7. Supper is chicken with chips and cauliflower cheese. I add apple sauce. The sweet was nice trifle.
