TMF stands for Tiree Music Festival but it could also stand for Tents May Fly.
With the anticipated numbers attending the festival the MV Isle of Mull was due to replace the MV Clansman on today’s sailing as it can accommodate more foot passengers. However, due to the anticipated weather and sea conditions the “Mighty Clansman” made the crossing. With the expected high volume of passengers those travelling were advised to check in by 5.00am.
In contrast to the blue skies and calm waters experienced yesterday, it was grey skies, drizzle and white horses today. Thanks to those working on the pier and the skipper and crew, the Clansman berthed safely. Soon the festival goers were disembarking and making their way up the pier to the waiting buses. For some it was to be a long damp wait before they could finally get to the festival site.
Although skies have lightened after last night’s winds and there are at present tantalising glimpses of blue sky – the winds have to strengthen this evening and overnight. Tents May Fly!
Those attending the festival (and who last the course through to Sunday) are invited to meet up with islanders who are gathering in the Community Village Tent on Sunday morning to celebrate God’s goodness. TMF what does it stand for? Is it Tiree Music Festival – Tents May Fly or Thousands Miraculously Fed?
