    Well it has been a quiet few weeks. I am settling into the quiet life. I actually really enjoy it, if not for it being a bit lonely at times. I am however definitely suited for country life, I love the quiet and the privacy. Although it has been pretty foggy here the last couple weeks when the stars are visible it is pretty incredible. The downsides are that I don't have a car and can't just hop on a bus to go explore since they only come a few times a days. The same can be ...

    -e.e. Cummings

    We have travelled up the east coast of Scotland stopping at various towns and hamlets until we made our way to the ferry terminal at the outer most edges of the mainland. Orkney islands are more norse the books say but it's still cows and sheep for the most part. Beautiful lands here. We came to walk in the neolithic sites, standing stones older ...

    ... no path was shown and I didn't really want to be wading through thick wet grass for several hours so I chose the road.
    From Gills Bay I headed north-west and leaving the road briefly to walk down to St John's Point. Here I was struck by the energy of the seascape. Just off the point are a number of eroded sea stacks known as the Men of Mey. The Merry Men of Mey is the name given to the strong tidal race, one of the strongest ...
