An orange glow flooded our home this morning.
After days of predominantly grey skies – colour once again.
There is no doubt that we appreciated a calm and colourful weather window.
At just the right time the clouds parted.
The parting gave a window on the sunrise.
The view towards the Paps of Jura just got better and better.
To think they are fifty miles away.
Blue skies were the order of the day.
Well at least for the morning.
The ferry was thirty minutes late in arriving today.
The sea was calm and colourful! – So why the delay this morning?
The delay was due to technical problems with the MV Isle of Mull.
As a consequence the MV Clansman had to come to the rescue.
She took some vehicles to Criagnure on the Isle of Mull.
This resulted in delay of thirty minutes.
After several grey days this colourful weather window was so welcome.
Our white shell sand and the surrounding seas accentuate the sense of colour.
The Clansman departed Tiree for Coll, Craignure and Oban.
The stop at Coll was cancelled with MV Isle of Mull returned to service.
The ferry’s arrival at the ferry terminal in Oban was not as late as expected.
The observant on board the ferry saw the MV Loch Alainn.
The vessel had come through the Gunna Sound on her way south.
This Loch Class ferry was making her way south for her annual service.
Although well out across the Passage of Tiree she added a touch of colour.
The Treshnish Isles and the Isle of Mull were so clear today
The sea was calm and the sky blue.
And the lochen reflective.
In the afternoon the cloud cover increased.
At sundown there were no fiery reds as accompanied sunrise.
Nevertheless the shafts of sunlight brought another hue to the sky.
This is ‘Life on Tiree’ on a calm and colourful day.
It has been a welcome weather window.
