According the forecast today was to be heavy rain all day. So I'd squeezed in a couple of hours sailing yesterday – great fun in a brisk southerly.
Despite the forecast today started fine and continued that way after lunch – and given it's late in the year, it seemed too good a chance to miss.
Hardly a breath of wind so I rowed steadily towards Inchkeith – the island that is tantalisingly in sight whenever I launch from Portobello. (In fact, it's in sight from everywhere in the eastern firth.) I didn't make it all the way before it was time to turn back as the sun sets today at 4.20.
On the way back I let the boat drift for a while as I enjoyed the scene.
The two sunsets are looking south over Edinburgh. The third photo is to the west – if my phone had a decent camera, you'd see the Forth road and rail bridges in the distance. The last is Inchkeith to the north.
