Getting our land legs back!
Nana and I just returned today from a week-long trip to Orkney and Shetland, two island groups on Scotland's northern fringes.
And I'm proud to report that, after even a very calm overnight ferry between Shetland and Aberdeen (compounded by three hours on the train), the ground has almost stopped shifting beneath my feet!
Look for a bevvy of "Shorkney" posts in the near future, plus a little dash about Aberdeen, capital of Scotland's North Sea oil industry.
