The Orkney island is a place with a lot of narrow roads. Therefore, I was a bit sceptical when we took our big bus all the way from Edinburgh and up. “We” was a group from friends who had met in CISV, a peace organisation working with children.
I did not have worried. The driver was very competent and manoeuvered the large ship into the smallest spaces.
In the first image everybody in the bus tries to get a glimpse of something happening in front of our vehicle. The second and third images were taken at Yesnaby, an outpost by the ocean, showing us that Orkney is not only flat pastures, but also has to fight storms from the west.

Kirkwall is not a swinging town in Orkney. The evenings are dark and quiet, no crowds in the streets. However, I go to Orkney for different reasons.
Nature is one. Folk music is another.
In the first picture Jerka from Sweden is on his way to the Reel. Inside atmosphere is so different than outside darkness and stillness.

Since I first showed you the image from Birsay on high tide, and my fellow travellers could not get across, here is a picture of the place at low tide. Also, here is an image of som very advanced house building, where they led warm water under the stone floors. That is more than I have today!

Take a good look at this picture from Orkney. Can you see what is going on and do you know where in Orkney the image is from?
