Corinne and I have been in Orkney since Sunday night. It is 6 hours by ferry from the Aberdeen on the mainland. It was a really choppy journey over as the crossing is where the Atlantic and the North sea join.
These islands are beautiful and so peaceful and the people are SO SO SO SO friendly!! I could move here tomorrow. We have been on the main island staying just outside Kirkwall and have done lots of exploring as we have had the last two days off. The ferry doesn't return until tonight when we will go home. I would urge anyone to make the trip here. The views alone are worth it!
