We seem to have survived the Apocalypse forecast by the Mayans..... I did leave out some carrots for the horses of the four horesmen just in case, but carrots were still there this morning so I'm guessing they didn't come!
Anyway it's the Winter Solstice - my favourite day in Winter as it's the shortest day and slowly but slowly the light will begin to return and we are on our way to SPRING! Whooooo Hoo!!!!
I'll share with you an old YouTube video shot in December 2010 of the Winter Solstice. I've shared it before but it is worth repeating. It shows the sun setting behind the Hoy Hills and the moon rising above Stromness.
Enjoy! (And apologies to those of you who have trouble view video....sigh).
