A walk in the sunshine
Last Weds was just glorious with warmth in the sunshine. Button and I took a walk along the shore..... The waves gently lapped on the coral sand....
It was lunch time so the Graemsay ferry had been to the island and onto Hoy and was heading back to Stromness.
Button was happy to be out in the sunshine after several weeks of inactivity due to gales and rain
The shore was covered in tangles (seaweed), heaped up by the winter storms. This beach doesn't get too much flotsam and jetsam washed up but the other side of the island has suffered terribly I believe.
Ahem, yes of course Button is posing...
Stromness was looking lovely too.
But the storms have reduced more of this old building to rubble.
The waves looks so benign in this photo but their power can never be underestimated.
The hens were enjoying the calm day and were rootling among the old buildings
On our way back from the walk. Button trotting home. The lighthouse in the background (obviously!) and the "Green Box" which is the Graemsay Telephone Exchange complete with microwave link to Stromness. We have fast broadband - but I just hope it's not frying my brain at the same time!
And of course Button made the most of the warmth with a spot of sun bathing on the flags while I headed in for a cup of tea!
