Midsummer in Orkney

We had a lovely trip over to Orkney this weekend, with my Mum and my Aunt (up visiting from Shepperton). As you can see from the photos - the weather was amazing, we were so lucky!
We did the guided coach tour, which was great as a taster, but I'd love to go back and stay on one of the islands for a few days.

We had a little time on this gorgeous beach - just enough
for a paddle and a wander (and a dance if you are A!).


Visited the Ring_of_Brodgar - an ancient stone circle.
Better (prof) pics here if you're interested

It felt very appropriate to be here on the summer solstice

More to come....

We're definitely going back sometime, there's so much to see.

Lynn - I know what you mean, A dances, and also sings all the time - I love it!
