Look! "They" were right - it is a beautiful day. The sun is shining and there is no wind. Everyone is walking about with sapsy smiles, greeting strangers with weather comments and casting off their SAD right, left and centre. I'm sure the natives of this land would be more optimistic and cheerful if we could have this weather as a winter norm - and as for the effect of a glassy sea for the ferries (you can see both varieties in this photo) to run on.....

But let us not be get carried away. We'll pey for it ... you'll see.
(NB: Spelling of "pey" a deliberate attempt to replicate pronunciation)


  1. The Firth look calm enough to use as a shaving mirror - for the men that is!

  2. Apparently Muscovites are suffering from SAD this year. They're having abnormally warm and grey weather much like ours instead of -30ÂșC with sunshine.
