|Fair Isle's South Lighthouse lost it's wall yesterday due to high breaking waves.|
Dave, Josie & Peter who live at the Lighthouse are safe & well, flats undamaged. My artist studio is untouched thank goodness, but the Northern Lighthouse Board's engine room window was smashed, flooding the room & equipment. The window was temporally covered with a board, full damage will be assessed tomorrow when a NLB man arrives.See yesterday's Storm video & blog post
|The wall is gone form the road entrance to the foghorn.|
Large chunks of wall have been move by the waves.
|While everyone comes down to assess the damages, some folks say they seen storms like this before.|
But that wall had been there for maybe a 100 years? I'm not sure when the fog horn was put in?
|It's quite sad. The Norther Lighthouse Board who own the wall, must be glad they didn't just paint it...|
Do they really have the money to rebuild it, much less clean it up? Let's hope it's insured.
|The wall plaque commemorating the WW2 bombing of the Lighthouse still stands.|
|You know that bench you like to sit on... I saw a few pieces in Hultry Geo.|
The 4"by 4" post anchoring the bench was violently snapped off, stone and concrete scattered everywhere.
|Who put all the rocks on my grass?|
|The bails washed around beach balls|
|The Fair Isle lighthouse Keepers Golf Course|
has some big divots made in the grassy slope by tumbling bits of wall pushed by waves.
|Rocks thrown down the road.|
|The stone wall is gone... or moved further a field.|

Not Roadkill, Wavekill?
Yes, We did eat the Octopus!
Fried in panko breadcrumbs served with a wasabi soysauce.
The next night we ate the rest braised in Spanish spices over pasta.
You got to take the good with the bad...

I'm Dave's daughter - in typical fashion I read about this in the national papers before he told me anything about it! Glad everyone is well and the clean-up doesn't take too long :)ReplyDelete
Wow, never underestimate mother nature.ReplyDelete
Tommy - I guess we'll need to wait a while to play the golf course as part of our epic efforts to play every course in Scotland for Cancer Research UK. Maybe May or June but we'll be in touch with Tommy well beforehand.ReplyDelete
