Today's weather is punctuated by heavy but short downpours. At 9.30 a.m., the research vessel Discovery, callsign GNLE, comes into port. I blogged about her on the day. The day continues peacefully, with occasional rain and hailshowers, as well as great cloudscapes. Muirneag hovers outside port at 1 pm, waiting for the ferry to come and go. Go to Somerfields at 4.40pm, half an hour after sunset (at 4.10). The Discovery lies tied up alongside pier number 3, and I curse myself for not going down during daylight hours. Tonight's episode of The Archers on Radio 4 had it out between David and Ruth - regular listeners will know what I'm on about. Watch some carcrash TV, as well as a Hercule Poirot mystery.
