At Midsummer 2012, WordShore produced a blog about his experiences of living in Berneray some five years previously. He comments on and observes several aspects of an island on ‘the periphery of Europe’ with its long hours of daylight (in the Summer) and its stimulating beach walks taken either alone or in company. As well as walking, he experienced some of that feeling of liberty when sailing well off-shore. The photographs that accompany the blog both attract and, in many cases, will revive memories. Resolve to experience for yourself by the Longest Day of 2014.
