I had to see people today for IT Support and Web Design all over the island so I took off early this morning in rather appalling weather. Due to the strong winds the morning ferries were cancelled and there was quite a bit of rain as well. When I stopped in Port Charlotte the waves were crashing over the pier and the sky was very dark, it was an amazing sight. By the time I arrived in Bowmore it was dry and on my way to the Oa patches of blue sky appeared. During lunch time I left for Lagavulin and Ardbeg, where I had a very nice lunch at the Old Kiln Cafe. By now the sun was breaking through the clouds. After lunch I went back to the Oa, to Ballivicar, in bright sunshine. At the end of the day the wind was almost gone and I witnessed a beautiful sunset from the shore of Loch Indaal just outside Bridgend. What an amazing Islay day it was, the contrast between the pictures below, both of Loch Indaal and both taken on the same day, couldn't have been any bigger.
