A Stormy Pier View

It’s been a stormy day throughout much of Scotland.
On the West Coast many ferry sailings have been cancelled.
Tiree has not escaped the strong winds and powerful waves.
The Sunday Sailing from and to Oban suffered as a consequence.

Waves power in to Gott Bay

Daylight hours have been characterised by driving rain showers.
At times our west facing window has been battered by the rain.
In a break this evening we headed for the pier.
The view was not disappointing

Sammy seal says for larger pictures in galleries double click
and for captions mouse-over.

Spindrift, swell and breaking waves characterised the scene.
The darkening sky was threatening.
Rain was not far away.

Two or more seals entertained.
They crested the waves.
Diving and surfacing.

.Often these friendly seals by the pier welcome the arrival of the ferry.
Tomorrow they will have to surface two hours later than normal.
Due to sea conditions following the high winds today
there will be an amended timetable tomorrow.

Cars queuing already - hopeful they will get on Monday's sailing
