 After the snow, sleet, hail and gale we did finally get some sunshine and warm days.  A chance for lambs to enjoy the sun on their  backs, hens to help in the garden and me to enjoy just being outdoors again!

Above - you are never alone in the garden when you have hens!

If you click on the photo to enlarge you can see the Northlink Hamnavoe Ferry sailing into Stromness from the Scottish Mainland. That cloud is BIG!

Ewes and lambs enjoying the glow of the setting sun.

And then the sunset.....

From on the old lighthouse pier

Creels piled up on the old lighthouse pier

On the coral beach alongside the old lighthouse pier

And here comes the Hamnavoe ferry again...

And looking across the garden and old steading

And at bedtime, looking across to Stromness. I love it when the lights of the town reach across to tough the Graemsay shore...

Also thought I would share this link to a blog post of beautiful photos and poems by fellow blogger, Mark.


  1. Fantastic cloud! And those rosy-colored sheep in the sunset.

  2. Thats a wonderful view in your last picture, that could send you peacefully to sleep.

    1. On calm nights I love spending a few minutes just looking across the water to Stromness.

  3. Beautiful sunshine and sunsets!

    1. Thanks. They are gorgeous from here...
