Video of Orkney

Ewan Dunsmuir has created this lovely short video of Orkney during a very benign period of weather in December 2017.  It's about 5 mins long.  Enjoy!

Happy New Year!

Here we are at the start of a brand new year.  I wonder what it will bring us?  Here's to adventures.

It was a lovely morning with no wind.  A chilly 4 degrees C (40F) but pleasant enough if well wrapped up! I have family in New York City where it has been -14 C so I'm not complaining!

Anyway - the usual shots around the house today......

A rainbow! And Hoy High lighthouse of course.

Look carefully - it's a full rainbow

And the other end - looking towards Stromness

The girls having their first breakfast of 2018.

Charlie, the barn cat.  He is a very shy boy but posed for a nano second to have his photo taken today!

Looking towards the Hoy Hills - they have lost most of their snow....

What is that light in the sky. Oh wait! It's the sun!  We've had lots of very grey skies lately so it is a joy to see the sun even for a wee moment!

And the clouds are beautiful too of course

May 2018 bring you good times,
