A December walk on the beach.....
With Button, of course!
We were both being watched..... this inquisitive seal was lazily floating very close to the shore.
The weather in recent weeks has been changeable. We've had a cold spell, but generally it's still very mild for the time of year. There has been a dusting of snow on the top of Ward Hill on Hoy though.
You can just see the cairn on the summit. One of many (cairns...not summits).
This was a lovely calm day but we've had raging gales and just generally wet and windy days too.
Orkney Mainland and Stromness harbour in the distance.
Button was watching a helicopter overhead.
Time to head home....
The hens were happy to see us...
I spotted a large barge in the Flow. This had been in Stromness harbour for a while but had made a short trip into the Flow and seemed to be heading back to the harbour again.
