THURSO, SCOTLAND (June 18, 2015) — My long train trip from Scarborough was successful yesterday. I arrived in the dark (or what passes for darkness this far north) and had a long walk from the train station to my hotel. My introduction to Scotland was a driving rain with high winds, so I arrived at the hotel soaked through. These photos, then, are from this morning with much better weather.
We had our first sessions of the 2015 Larwood Symposium today at the Environmental Research Institute in Thurso. I was very pleased to give my talk in the morning so I can relax for the rest of the meeting.
