|Landing certainly not possible on Staple today|
|Meanwhile on Inner Farne......|
|A good thing we moved our boat!|
|Longstone taking a hammering|
|Em trying to take a wind reading with some difficulty|
Monday 6th October comments: Just a quick update from the islands to let you know that we’re all well and still here after taking an absolute battering from both wind and waves today! We knew a storm was on its way, with strong South-easterly winds forecast, but we didn't quite realise the intensity with which it would hit the islands. With winds peaking today at gale force 8, the sea has been an impressive sight and has well and truly cut us off from the mainland. It’s a privilege to experience nature at its rawest out here, but with winds set to calm tomorrow hopefully we’ll be seeing you all soon.
