After being out until 2, spirit didn’t move me until 15 minutes before breakfast. It was already raining so I started the day with long johns, paints and rain pants. Ironically the whole day was rain free after that first downpour, go figure.
We started at the Skatabrae Historical Exhibit and looked at more unearthed stones that no one knew for sure what they were used for but it very well could have been a village or maybe a casino? Not sure, neither were the proprietors. It was a beautiful spot by the ocean and some of the formations may have made some nice photos, we’ll see later.
The we stopped at Applie’s for lunch and it was wonderful! I bought one of her cook books (something I never do) because lunch was unique and delicious, I thought maybe we could duplicate some of her flavors at home.
The next stop was at Brough of Borsay which is a seacoast site with beautiful rock formations at low tide. The air was cold and windy but the skies were rain free and that itself was a treat. I walked one way the group walked the other way, we both came back with different photos.
Our last stop for the day was at Earl’s Palace at Borsay. This is a 15th century ruin. The most interesting part was the small town church by the seacoast, the grave stones and the English phone booth.
Finally after dinner, we ventured out for more night photography, staying on the grounds and finishing up early (midnight) leaving ample time for a good night’s sleep.
