May 2022 – St Kilda trip back on Terra Firma.

Yesterday was sheltering awaiting the storm to die down. We satiated on boat all day till late afternoon as it would have been crazy to launch the inflatable in that weather. We all enjoyed the break. The weather and light changing every few minutes. Watching huge waves crash along the cliffs and reefs. There were the Birds still at it diving for fish. I was happy we were sheltered with a few miles from our harbour.

The wee harbour.

We headed back late afternoon and had a wander around we again had a cold wind, sun and then sheltered in a bus shelter as the rain lashed down. We had time to think enjoy what we had seen and as always my friend Kalie was smiling and so happy with the trip. The Four other companions were great company all different yet we had such a great time.

Great company

We head back via Stornoway today in the big ferry back to normal life . Yet what a trip a huge adventure in all kinds of weather a visit to St Kilda the journey through the stacks chasing the weather and the wild life: Orcas, Dolphins, so many birds and the wild seas.

Well that’s the end of a lovely few days. All I can say is a huge thanks to Murdo, Gary and the crew for looking after us so well. Few get the chance to visit this place but what an experience thank you all.
