|Raggie telling one of the Viking tales|
The weather was against us as it was drizzling rain, however Mark I had a roaring fire going in the lea of the wind and rain at Scapa beach (near the harbour there). And there were simmering pots of chicken and vegetables cooked in beer (veggie option available). I may have found a way I will no eat cooked carrots - soaked in beer!

Raggie (who is Norwegian and has an infectious enthusiasm for all things Viking) told us the history of vikings and feasts while we prepared to eat dinner. (Lovely fresh raspberries for desssert!). Then she regaled us with stories from the old times, or showed some of the younger members how to write their name in runes.
Meanwhile Mark I showed us how to do lucet braiding... which was entertaining!

A Viking Feast is definitely a fun way to spend a couple of hours on a summer evening!
