Sea Kayaking, Orkney

A Small Sea Stack

Today we caught the ferry over from Gill's Bay and arrived on Orkney where we promptly headed off to meet the final member of the team. After coffe and cake we headed to the West side of Orkney Mainland, got the kayaks off the roof and headed into the sea. It was fairly rough in places but calmed down enough after a while to allow us in closer to the cliffs. Today I saw Fulmars, Guilimots, Black Guilimots, Kittiwakes, Eider Ducks, Oyster Catchers and the day ended on a high with a seal following me around and popping up to have a good stare at me.
We are now camped at at very nice site in Stromness looking over to Hoy.
