Making the best of the weather

<![CDATA[ No ferry anywhere in the islands, rain belting down, dire forecasts for a week full of gales? Well, better enjoy the wild west while it lasts. Next thing, we'll be in the throes of snow and ice. I think I prefer the gales.

Just wanted to share some of the pictures I took at Battery Point on Sunday.
