Size is relative

This is a guest photo-blog by First Born (the peedie muckle sister, seeing as she's our elder daughter, but not as tall as Second Born).

All of the following images were taken by FB.

Saturday was unexpectedly warm, that is, unexpected by the population of Orkney and the woefully-incorrect weather forecaster for the region. Still, every cloud..., eh?

Our Lass and FB went to Yesnaby on the west coast, soaking up the rays and admiring the views.








The following day, in more normal October weather for Orkney, they ventured to Rose Ness.

Graeme, I've been fascinated by the similarities in superficial geology between Orkney and the California coast to the south and north of where I live: MontaƱa De Oro State Park and Wilder Ranch State Park.

Aye, but we don't have as many pumpkins!

I'll check on the surface geology and report back...

What a beautiful spot! Love the photos. Hope to visit one day. My niece just visited your wonderful locale. Last year for her father's birthday she thought it would be a fun idea to have him submit a blood sample to be sent away for genealogy testing. Turns out some of the ancestors were from Orkney so off she flew to Orkney to check it out the kinfolk.

MC, as I understand it, there was a great deal of to-ing and fro-ing between Orkney and Canada, due to the Hudson Bay Company. And John Rae, of course. It won't take you 28 days to drive across Orkney, more like 28 minutes...
