AUTUMN IN THE BAHAMAS!

Believe it or not, we do have autumn here in The Bahamas! It started on September 22nd and there is a lovely cool feel to the air. Although temperatures are still in the eighties Fahrenheit during the day and seventies at night, the humidity has dropped, so the weather is much more comfortable.

Of course, we’ve had a lot of rain from a tropical wave and a cold front, which Erskine says met up with each other! That helps. They both went north and Florida is getting them now.

Winter starts December 21st!

SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE ROCK!

“Sons and Daughters of The Rock” - this statement refers to my birthplace, Stirling. On one of my visits there, I was delighted to be informed by the waitress in a little cafĂ© that I am “a Daughter of The Rock!”, having been born in Stirling. Apparently, at one time anyone born in Stirling was a son or daughter of “The Rock”, the rock being the steep and rugged crag that Stirling Castle was built on.

However, from 2011 on Stirling women in labour have had to deliver their babies at the Forth Valley Royal hospital in Larbert, near Falkirk, and apart from home births there have sadly been no more “Sons and Daughters of The Rock”.

Gordon, the lead male protagonist in my novel “Love at Sunset”, is a “Son of The Rock”! Much of Gordon and Violet’s Scottish adventures take place in the Stirling area. “Love at Sunset” is also set in The Bahamas. I had fun bouncing my characters back and forwards across “the pond”!

HURRICANE IRMA ARTICLE NOW ONLINE

I now have the link to my Hurricane Irma article that appeared in The Stirling Observer print edition on Friday, September 22nd, 2017.  As The Stirling Observer no longer has a dedicated website, their content is posted on The Daily Record's website. According to Wikipaedia, the Daily Record is the leading news brand in Scotland with a total audience of 3.1 million (rising to 3.4 million including the Sunday Mail).

I’m hoping that my article will help a little with Hurricane Irma’s relief efforts. I was born in Stirling, Scotland, so that’s why they have referred to me as a “Stirling Journalist and Author”!
