Today the wind has been quite high in Orkney, but the sun has been shining for most of the day. When you don't see the sun very often, you have a much greater appreciation of it when it does deign to show its face!
There was occasion for some of us to travel to Kirkwall, the capital of Orkney today and I would like to share some photos I took of the beautiful return sailing.

Before reaching Stronsay, the boat makes a stop at Eday, another of the islands of Orkney. Here we are just departing Eday for Stronsay which is a good 30 minutes further.
