I kind of lost my blogging mojo for a while there. Partly as the weather has been so driech, with lots of grey skies, rain and some windy days and I haven't been out taking photos etc. Partly my internet connection was intermittent (engineers have been out so hopefully resolved). Also partly the Winter lethargy that comes over me at this time of year.
On the positive side, there have been few positive cases of covid-19 reported in Orkney in recent weeks, and those that have been reported are people returning to the county. The first doses of the Pfizer vaccine have all been distributed around Orkney. First to receive them are healthcare staff and people in care homes. I think I will be some way down the line yet and not sure what vaccine I will get as it all depends on availability. I probably won't change my habits that much even once I have the vaccine. I will probably see how infection rates go and see what are the further long term results regarding transmission and protection from the vaccine. But at least there is a glimmer of hope!
Anyway - here are a few pictures taken at the beginning of last week. There have been some dramatic skies interspersing a day of grey and rain.
