We stopped at the beach in Thurso, saw a few waves. Very cold & wet, had to climb across rocks and stones to get onto some sand. Drove to John O'Groats had coffee and cake, then walked down to the ocean and happened to see a seal just popping his head out of the water. Got back in the car & headed to Wicks to stay over night.

It was very interesting and we were given a couple of drams ...

Bremen to Iceland: Learning by doing

... had to wash our hands iwith avgas. It was quite humorous "washing" our hands underneath the fuel drains of the other planes in there. At some point Andrew just took off without saying a peep, so Johannes and I were left to the task of learning by doing. It's not rocket science, but we wanted to make sure we had everything put back together properly.
