Which is where I prepared my chicken and chorizo salad. .. very tasty. .
And still daylight at nearly 11pm
Even midnight and you can still take a photo
Slept like a log last night. . Started the day with a bacon and egg sandwich and a hello from a chocolate lab.. bit overweight. . That’s the dog, not me.. didn’t get its name. . He was more interested in my sarnie
But onwards. .. off to Shapinsay…..
why I hear you ask.. well my mam traced her ancestors back to a Croft on Shapinsay. . It’s a place called lingro
After advice and directions from the ferry man.. looks like I’ve found it
Must say… what a lovely accent the locals have… touch of Norse. .
What a tiny place. . But I bet it was cosy. .
In fact the guy who lives here now, works on the ferry between Kirkwall and shapinsay. …. and has a chocolate labrador. ..
After a cuppa. . It was back to the ferry via a round trip to Stromness
Took this when I had chance and breathing space for two cars to pass.
Of course the one thing that stands out for me is… Scapa Flow. .. I would love to dive the wrecked vessels but my diving days are over..
And ended up in Scrabster to sample some fine seafood
Where I lay my head is another thing. ..
Oh…. i know. …..the land rover!
