Over the sea to #Orkney, #holiday

Part two of Deborah’s journey to Orkney. The crossing can be tough, when I was a kid, the ferry we took from Scrabster, was called the Ola, she was a brave ship and I still remember going from one side to the other as she rolled through the firth.


I’ve learned a bit from the past few island hopping holidays, where I used a holiday company to organise the ferries and accommodation. This holiday was to be rather different as a friend – a fellow dressage judge, the only dressage judge on Orkney – had invited us to stay with her. As a consequence, I booked the ferries myself and, taking my cue from the tour company, I chose different ferry routes to get there and back again. In fact, two different ferry companies altogether.

There are many ways to get to Orkney

With a very particular goal in mind (more on that later) for the return journey, our outward ferry left Gills Bay and arrived into St Margaret’s Hope, on the island of South Ronaldsay.

Pentland ferries run this one route, aboard the ‘PENTALINA’, a very broad catamaran ferry, good for crossing the Pentland Firth, which has some…

John O’Groats – North coast of #Scotland – as far as you can go? #Holiday

Deborah sails to Orkney, of course, I’m reblogging this I’m an Orcadian lol


STILL mired in the events of this horrendously challenging year, I am once again resorting to sharing my travels with you instead of anything writing related. Fortunately, it seems you love reading about the wonders of Scotland!

In desperate need of some clear head space, I’d arranged to leave for Scotland the day after mum’s funeral, with Orkney as a final destination. I didn’t know all that much about Orkney before I began researching this trip, and discovered to my surprise that although a ferry (or an aircraft) is required to get there, Orkney isn’t actually that far off the north coast of Scotland – only 6 miles, and easily visible unless the weather is bad.

I’d booked a morning sailing, with a view to a full day of sightseeing upon arrival, so we stayed overnight in a B&B not far from the port. Arriving there in plenty of time…

Old Souls by D.G. Kaye

D.G. Kaye’s post about “old souls” we’ve all heard the phrase but, what exactly is an “old soul”.

The Sisters of the Fey


Today I’m going to talk about ‘Old Souls’. We hear that term from time to time, usually referred to people who hold the depths of ‘all knowing’ and wisdom at a young age – feeling older and wiser beyond actual years. This isn’t to be misconstrued with ‘chronological age’ as old soul refers more to the experience we’ve gathered through our accrued years of knowledge through past lives.


Those with a higher level of soul are those who have reached the level of many journeys throughout their lifetimes. It is said that memories don’t come with us in each new life, but the knowledge of life experiences grow with us through each journey. It is also said that just by looking in someone’s eyes you can see their wisdom. This doesn’t mean that person is necessarily highly intelligent, but rather has a high level of ‘spiritual’ intelligence.

Recycling and Climate Change…The Good News…

Carol’s weekly news on recycling and climate change with some really good news.

Retired? No one told me!

I love that around the world much is going on to minimise rubbish and clean up the world …I do think we all need to take part though and learn just how and what can be recycled as many things are made from a mixture of various types of plastics which then means they need specialist recycling. I am much more aware when I buy something now as to its composition so that in the event it will need recycling at some stage I know where and how…or even if it can be recycled. Are you?

A heart map held by a hand

I have decided that in the run up to Christmas and with all the election news and impeachments etc etc…Mondays will be a good news day…

As Christmas is coming I thought that I should turn our thoughts to batteries as there will be many of these sold and thrown away…

Batteries contain several…

Don’t Panic?

Help my friend, Ani, please.

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

“Don’t panic!” says she, with her hands in my fur,
“I am sure they will help.” Well, it’s alright for her!
Cause she isn’t the one who is facing the threat…
And I’ve hardly had any responses as yet!

If I don’t fill my calendar with Santa’s letters
It’s me who’ll be wearing the antler-shaped fetters
While she clicks the camera, up close to my face
And puts the pics out there, all over the place!

So, I’m feeling a little bit down in the dumps
And I’m hoping my furry friends all come up trumps.
And will send in their notes, lend a small dog a paw,
Cause I’ve typed till I don’t think I can any more.

Antlers are for Reindeer!

If you would like to help save Ani from a fate (she says) worse than death, send your Letters to Santa, festive memories, short stories, flash fiction…
