Your blogger has left the light on at the Lighthouse, but is away from the island for a week. Back next Tuesday. Looking at Hebrides News, I notice that MV Isle of Lewis is away for a refit in Denmark, to be fitted with sulphur-belching engines which are better for the environment. Can't quite see the logic behind that, but then I'm only a simple observer, not a mechanic, not Calmac, and overendowed with a propensity towards lateral thinking. Just as well I'm flying back to Stornoway, and not sailing in a cloud of SO2, CO2 and the like. Oh, a plane pollutes as well, doesn't it?
