    ... turn a corner. We had a little cry together while I explained all that had happened to me at her age. I told her it gets better and she just has to keep pushing through, keep her head down and not react to the bullies.

    ... made when returning from Hawaii where he was killed. All interesting stuff, and this is typical of what I mean about so much involved in what we saw today. We spent two hours here. Load up the bus again we're off to The Earl's Palace at Birsay, but that was in ruins and not that interesting it was built by Robert Stewart, the illegitimate sone of James V in the mid 1500's.
