14th July 2011 (Heather Gray)

7.20pm – The Swan arrived in Stornaway this morning, there's trees!

We've spent the day exploring the local area, especially the trees surrounding Lewis Castle. We experienced our first spill of rain for the trip and we are all hoping it will be the last we see! I’ve mostly been enjoying some quiet time and relaxing with the sail trainees during the day, we are all conserving our energy before heading out to see a samba band later on tonight. We plan to set sail for Orkney tomorrow morning, hopefully after a good night’s sleep to top up our energy supplies!
