So, it’s been a while since my last update because I’ve been a busy girl, as you shall see in this and my next few updates.
At the end of last May I went on a boat trip and guided tour put on by the Caithness and Sutherland Countryside Rangers Service to Hoy, to see the famous ‘Old Man of Hoy‘. “Who is he?” I hear you ask. He is a giant sea stack formed from old red sandstone just off the coast of Hoy, and is very popular with climbers, despite the fact that once you’re out there you’re on your own as rescue is completely unavailable!
But I was just there to admire him, as well as all the sea birds he’s also popular with and the sea life on the way to and from the island. There were numerous sea birds but the highlight of the trip was catching sight of four Porpoise, a Minke Whale and two Wild Orcas from the boat. It was fantastic!
And then I went to Tenerife. More about that soon…
