the weather continues in a stormy vein up here.. Before heading back to Cornwall next week I’d hoped to get down to Mingulay in a kayak for a couple of days exploring & wild camping but with Hurricane Katia on the way it ain’t going to happen. The wind did drop off a little last night for a cracking evening surf… offshore winds on a perfectly formed head-high wave with wonderfully stormy evening light. Magic.
Because the airport is the sheltered beach behind the dunes backing the west-facing surf beach of Traigh Eais the free parking, in contrast to Cornwall’s hideous beach parking charges, is very handy and the baggage reclaim shed makes a cracking foul-weather changing spot… but not in this photo taken one fine evening earlier in the summer. Bearded guitar minstrel optional.
