...... once I have recovered from a nasty stomach bug that snuck up on me at the weekend. Feeling better today so hopefully well on road to recovery. The weather has been glorious - typical, just when I can't enjoy it to the full! But veggies have been growing without my constant attention and I shall just ignore the weeds for now!
A group of school children and their teachers arrived on the island a couple of hours ago for a visit to the beach. They are from Stromness Primary School, and at least they have a warm sunny day to explore rock pools and make sand-castles! It's surprising the number of Orcadians who remark upon their only visit to Graemsay having been on a school trip or a Sunday School picnic. At least these kids will have memories of sunshine and sand to take home with them - plus a few shells from the beach too!
