Storm walking

On a still day, you can look out from Papa Stronsay in wonder at just how calm and flat the sea is. It can compare to a lake, flat like glass...





...and then there are the other days.







We see a fair few of them during the winter, and they hold their own excitement as you watch the waves crashing onto the beach with such force and with such noise; and with the wind blowing full force in your face. It is nice on days like this to go storm walking, and Papa Stronsay offers an excellent opportunity to do just that. A few days ago during a patch of rough weather, some of the confreres dressed up warmly, and went to experience a walk around Papa Stronsay in a storm.

Dear Reverend Fathers, since I was a child I have always been fascinated by stormy sea. As you say, watching <"... the waves crashing onto the beach with such force and with such noise ..."> get us an idea of the Creation's magnificence. And we have the opportunity to remember that we are like drifting boats and that God is our Lighthouse. God bless
