Its hard to believe its a year on Sunday past when the Danio hit the rocks at the end of the Blue Caps. Where does a year go to and this time last year the weather was dreadful.
I remember all the sheep being stuck in the snow in the middle of the lambing season and the seas were unreal.
I still to this day can’t believe how lucky the Danio was, as if the winds had been in a northerly direction she would have been ripped to shreds and be lying on the bottom today, but because they were in the east the Longstone Lighthouse and the island came to her rescue.
At least no harm was done and only the pride of the Captain, Captain’s Mate and the owner of the ship was dented. Plus the ship.
This story will be talked about in the village for years to come.
