We got off lightly. A morning walk at the Secret Cove before the weather closed in. Clouds brewing on the horizon. A fly-past from the Red Arrows, diamond shape of 9, one flying behind – filming I guess. Too fast to get a photo. We shaded our eyes from the sun. The rig is new. Not sure how long it will be there.
No hint that the day would be so awful for some. Devastating. Very sad for those affected.
Got home, just before the rain started and the wind got up.
