Sunny South Ron

South Ronaldsay was my favourite place in early summer and the trip from Windwick to the 4th barrier was the highlight.

There were big caves....
...interesting tunnels....

...where we skillfully deployed rudder and draw strokes....

...without a single scratch to the full glitter finish.

We did surprise a seal who looked up after the first boat passed through and consequently got a bump on the head from the second.

Lunch at Kirk Bay.

We passed the wreck of the Irene and dodged through the remnants of her boilers.

Gave those boat hulls a thoroughly good thrashing in the name of rockhopping.

We practised rescues at Grimness, where it wasn't grim at all.

Now this place is nicknamed 'Niceness'.
