Late start this morning due to it raining. I’d seen the weather forecast last night, which said that it was going to be heavy rain from about 4 am till 7. I did debate as to whether or not to get up really early and pack away. But in the end I decided it probably wasn’t a good idea as I would then just get caught in the rain along the road, better to wait it out in the tent!

It eventually stopped raining just before 9 o’clock, so I quickly packed everything away, and I was on the road by 9.30.

The ride home was uneventful, and I came back on the fastest route, which was along the main roads, avoiding the ferries. I even managed to dodge all the rain that was about and walked in my door at about 3.30.

  1. You dodged the rain but how do you dodge pot holes? I’ve just written to the County Press about the state of Island roads.
