“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It’s always our self we find in the sea.”
― E.E. Cummings, 100 Selected Poems
To close the circle opened by my last post about our trip to Orkney, I wanted to share with you just a few photos from our visit. To prove, if indeed it was necessary, that our gorgeous Scottish islands are just the best!
The Orkney Isles archipelago consists of around 70 islands, of which around 20 are inhabited, to a greater or lesser extent. We were visiting only for a very short trip this time, so we stayed on Orkney itself, in Kirkwall, the largest settlement and administrative centre.
We had glorious weather, as you can see. This is a view from Kirkwall Harbour across the Bay of Weyland.
