Orkney - Reconnecting with the familiar

A changing light governed by cloud

Day 1 All is peaceful; the stream babbles, and the swifts collide in the garden. We sit looking westward; the sun is still high. The hills are darkening in a changing light governed by cloud

An easy journey here, however, domestic traumas, the fridge is not working. And then as if by magic a new one is organised! We stock it with  food from Lidl and Tesco, our first port of call on the way to the house.

Fields green beyond belief
Now all fields are green beyond belief. Buttercups and other flowers are strewn like carpets (varieties which we will name across the week).  Oyster Catchers are incessant while we to continue to love this island and its siblings.
