its sunny. But in Orkney sunshine is punctuated by fierce and furious squalls - just in case we get too soft around here. However that does not mean it isn't stunning from time to time, though this can be hard to appreciate when the tears are being blown out of your eyes and salt is caking in layers on your face. Sometimes its easier to appreciate in photos afterwards!

Who is that up front furiously paddling toward the pot of gold?

Hang on a minute - it can't be..?
It is! It's Lesley! Oh yes - she's just bought a new boat!

  1. It was a lovely day that day and great to get out after weeks of miserable weather.

  2. Beautiful shots of the rainbow. A rainbow is something to savour. Yes they say there's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow but I think the rainbow is reward enough in itself.

  3. You are right Tony - and the best view of it was from a kayak. It was an awesome day of magnificent weather.

    1. Cheers Ian - Johnny always takes good photos. In fact he won a prize in our club's inaugural photo competition. Sometimes its worth forgetting my own camera.
