In the bleak midwinter…Posted: December 21, 2015
Ullapool is almost as close to the Arctic Circle as it is to London, giving us long summer days, some of them stretching more than 18 hours between sunrise and sunset. Conversely, winter days are short, a few less than six and a half hours long. Today, December 21, is the winter solstice – the shortest day of all.
Later this week the sun will rise a little earlier, set a little later, but there’s still a whole chunk of winter to get through before we can look forward to spring and a whole new season of rowing under blue skies and a warming sun. Ever the optimist…
In the meantime, we can look back on an eventful and enjoyable 2015.
