Wednesday 6th October

A fair amount of cloud around at first, perhaps even the odd spot of light rain. However, the day should be mainly dry with some sunny spells at times. There is the chance that during the afternoon there may be one or two showers around, these mainly in the west. F5-7 
S to SE’ly winds at first, veering F5 S to SW’ly by evening. Some clear spells this evening and overnight, but also the risk of a light shower.
Sea state – Rough, with a 3 to 4 metre S to SE’ly wind-swell, later becoming moderate to rough, with a 2 to 3 metre S to SW’ly wind-swell.

A morning talking to art students at Lerwick College - thank you all for making me very welcome, and for your enthusiasm. Then a long session in studio with the drawing (no pics as my camera is broken(!) - another on order)
