A Farewell to Isles

... and age-related boys and girls. The crew really put their back into their rowing. To quote the contemporary military vernacular: it was decidedly 'kinetic'.

Now, for those of you who had in mind the thought that Australians helping with a barbecue while on vacation in the Shetlands would fit the descriptor: 'a busman's holiday', I'd like to say that Paul Hogan has much to answer for.

... down to -50m.

Returning to the Puffin: because of the first issue, they are forever placing one webbed foot on the other when standing or moving, so tripping attends virtually every step. Irrespective of whether the terrain is flat or precipitous, vegetated or barren, sandy or rocky, stumbles and tumbles mark the Puffin's terrestrial passage.

It has been a beautiful day on the Orkneys. Can't believe we were so ...
