Morale-booster on a rainy day

A Westray September is a moody companion. The equinox brought strong winds, first from the southwest, then from the cold north. Heavy rains have forced many of the pigs indoors. We've even had hail.

Yet there have been sunny days that have felt like small miracles as summer fades into the memory.

We've dragged ourselves out for walks on some of the island's best beaches, but only one of us has been in for a swim.

It's very summery here.

I don't know if you noticed it when taking the shot but there is a spooky shadow to the left of the second picture - like a Muslim woman in a burkha.

We get these days too, but rarely. Perfect for walking on the beach and feeling tiny.
