Season of Mists

“Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun”

How apt are the word’s of Keats written most likely in September 1819. Here on Tiree as the sun has dropped the mist has drifted across the island. Indeed one day even at 1:30 in the afternoon the mist began to envelope Gott Bay, yet the pier itself was in bright sunshine.

While the lengthy spell of warm, sunny weather may have come to an end, it has remained dry and calm. With a grey overcast sky today, it is good to remember what an amazing week we have enjoyed, especially considering this is the beginning of October.

Saphire skies, spectacular sunsets and sunrises,
and super moons have characterised the week.

This has been the final week of the Blue Beyond Gallery
Before its transformation into self-catering accommodation
Thankfully their online gallery will continue to be readily available

With a full moon we have had extreme tides.
It has been a week of highs and lows.
Yes! Life itself is full of highs and lows.

In the Bible, Paul testifies,
I have learned how to be content with whatever I have.
I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything.
To his young associate Timothy he said,
If we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.
