Tuesday 3 January

A stormy day in the north of this country, with force 10 winds being reported on Vlieland - where I was only a week ago. Gusts are nearing 70 mph. Storm damage is apparently being reported elsewhere in the north of the country. Here, 70 miles from the sea, gusts are at galeforce, 40 mph. Although it was raining this morning, it is now dry. The stormforce winds in Scotland have wreaked havoc, with lorries and buses blown over, most major rail and road bridges closed, roofs ripped off buildings and severe disruption on transport generally. The airport terminals at Glasgow and Edinburgh are damaged, so I hope I can pass through there on my way back to Stornoway tomorrow, Wednesday.

I am putting the Shell Gallery back under wraps until my return to Holland at some stage during 2012. Atlantic Lines will become my main blog again as of this coming Thursday, January 5th. I'll keep Facebook contacts updated on my journey through tomorrow.

I hope your trip is a safe and non-eventful one. Take good care.
