Those Botnia Targa's (despite appearances) sure can cover ground, quite a few 30 kt plus's yesterday,reassuring to have the Radar when the fog rolls in.

Must be tempting with this weather to go around the top

Great pictures

They won't be smiling when they reach here if our weather continues.

Rain of biblical proportions this morning. The price we pay for two weeks of cloudless skies.

Hope to have lunch at Portaferry, leaving Portaferry as the tide turns at about 13.30. Should be in Bangor at about 15.30.
