Unexpected Benefits
The ferry closure prompted some of Hornby's year round residents to spend some time abroad.  So our usually quiet island has become more so but it extends much further than just noise level.  The island feels stilled and more remote, a rarity in our fast age of instant gratification.  Combined with this spectacularly warm weather at the end of October and those of us who didn't leave the rock are feeling lucky we made the decision to stay behind.
