St Patrick's Day
17th March (Saturday- “St Patrick’s Day”) Enjoy St Patrick’s Day celebrations wherever you are; hopefully your weather will be ‘bright, sunny and
warm’ on this happy day.
|Bright afternoon.... but cold.....|
08.30 We do not have ‘bright, sunny and warm’ in Bonnie Scotland; at least not in our bit of this lovely country. Our weather is ‘windy and grey, with, intermittent, snow showers’ .... undeniably wintry. Oh ... and it’s cold! Ivy hatches might not be un-battened today! As for me .... I feel frolicsome,.... but, this ‘boy’ is not going to be frolicking far today; and, right now, at this very moment ... only as far as the kitchen to make myself a mug o’ coffee! Enjoy your day.... and stay cosy.Ireland v Scotland in the Six Nations today.... that will keep me cosy, in the early part of the afternoon.
|...... after a dull morning.|
The wind is still from the East, and bringing in big rolling waves with it, so he bay has been rough again. The wind is to be from the East again tomorrow, but less strong. It was overcast, and the tide out, when I was on the beach in the morning, by afternoon we were having long sunny spells; it was cold both times,... but bearable in the afternoon sunshine.
The villages are busy this weekend; as they are most weekends. Both times I was on
the beach there were dog walkers out.... but no joggers. Joggers add a bit of colour as well as
life to a photo; they, joggers, are usually wearing luminous, brightly coloured clothing.
Tomorrow I intend getting ‘up and out’ early; the plan being to get back to Ivy in time to go to the kirk at 11.00. Of course if it is too cold in the wind I might not go ‘out’ .... well.... if I do go out it won’t be for long. Frost is forecast for tonight and tomorrow morning.
