ship ahoy

It looks as though my ship has just come in. This vessel is the Queen Mary 2 and I don't know what it was doing in this close, it is unusual. Possibly it just came in to have a nose, as the folk festival was on at the time. We did wonder if it was to drop off somebody important, but no launch was seen.

"The first storm of autumn is on its way" reads the line at the Met Office today, so our first night in the hut will coincide with 50 mph winds (70 in Scotland) and rain. A good opportunity for me to record some new wind and rain sounds for use in my work anyway. The hut is well hunkered down and has been there for 50 years so far, so it should be okay. Evidence of visit coming at a later date hopefully.
