<![CDATA[ I suddenly realised that we're 11 days away from the Dating Extravaganza at Dell Fank, so I got on the hotline to the Coastguard, and they sent the tug out to look out for the Arran rowers.
I also asked folk to keep an eye open for anyone coming from Orkney and Shetland, but my description must have been a bit stereotypical. This came back from Bogha Glas just across the Harris border.
I gather that the Shetlanders may be carrying a bathtub, so I won't be bringing my green bathroom suite. From my vantage point here overlooking Stornoway harbour, I can see the various boats coming, provided visibility isn't impeded like it was today.
I'll keep readers posted on arrivals as they come into port. ]]>
