Made it back into Shetland today by the skin of my teeth, tonight's ferries having been cancelled due to severe weather warnings. Outside the wind and rain are now battering against the Booth. Late afternoon as, battling against the wind, I walked along the cliffs at Gulberwick towards the Ness of Trebister, the sea was frothing, huge waves rolling in under a heavy sky. Watched the gannets diving headlong into the sea and gulls whipping up into the sky. Managed a couple of drawings before retreating back up the path and heading home.
It's great to be back.
