Thankfully, when the ‘additional’ ferry arrived in Gott Bay today, the weather had begun to quieten. Although the wind was still blowing and there was a moderate swell, the MV Clansman managed to berth safely.
In the afternoon the sun broke through and there was clear evidence that the hours of daylight are slowly stretching. A late afternoon walk around the ‘township’ proved to be a time of quietly reflecting. First there was the gull sitting on the light on top of the lighthouse. A gull that was quietly gazing out to sea. Then there was the crow on top of the BT Tower, perhaps reflecting (but not quietly) about life on Tiree. As the sun began to descend in the West over the Golf Ball on Ben Hynish,, we passed a cottage almost passing itself off as ‘Island House’.
Taking up an Old Testament reference, the Apostle Paul says in his letter to the Christians in Corinth, “All of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord.”
