Hoy again - the close of a great adventure

Here is a sunset shot showing the superb turbulent seas which crash into the 1000 foot high sea cliffs and small sandy beach at Rackwick.

Also a photo of us at the popular"Flattie Bar " in Stromness and below a painting by local school children of the ferry which takes you from the Scottish mainland to Stromness.
A "Flattie" is a small flat bottomed boat used by Orkney sailors to row out over the calm sheltered bays to reach their larger and deeper drafted ocean going vessels.
