This morning we walked down to the port just before the sun rose to meet the barge that brought our bicycles, our groceries and Jack’s new office chair to the island. Although frosts don’t seem to be common on Inis Meáin, because of the protection of the sea, there was a lot of frost and ice around this morning. It was chilly at 0.5 °C but there was no wind, thankfully. The frost on our roof and in the paddocks next to our house looked like snow.
The animals’ water troughs were iced over and quite a few paddocks and rock walls had a dusty covering of white frost.
Even the roads and the currachs (traditional Aran Island boats) didn’t escape the frost today.
