Orkney Bound

No Nessie to be seen in the loch

It was hard tearing myself away from Dundee, as I had just got back from NY (or so it seemed) and Allan had just built me a brick wall that spelled out “Angry Birds” in Minecraft

🙂

But I had a great opportunity to go stay with friends Mary and Amy, while the latter takes up an apprenticeship with a potter here. So I was on my way Monday morning in the usual manner: a bus, a train, another train, a third and much slower train that sometimes went backwards, a ferry and then a car when they picked me up in Stromness. Orkney!

Heading into the highlands: too beautiful to capture from the train

    That’s the kind of alarm clock I can get along with.

      He sleeps rather late, but I won’t be reporting him to the chicken authorities.
