Tim's Travelling Adventures

by Penfold

Well, this started out as a way that my wife could follow my lone progress in my little sports car from Birmingham UK to Orkney.

Been there, done that 2 day there, 13hour return trip.

So now follow me: an Englishman representing Americans and based in a French office near Paris. With an appartment in Versailles and trips back to the UK anything can happen and, frankly, I've no idea where this will lead!

This morning Dave and i went for a run with the roof down to let him have a go. This afternoon we walked the dog on the beach in winds rising to force 7 and solid rain. Saw two swans swimming on the sea with not a cream tea or english village cricket team in sight!

Now you'll never guess what kind of magnet the ferryman thought the car was.

Earl's palace

Fancy having this at the end of your road? This is the Earl's Palace in Birsay and is about 20 metres from my friends' house.

Stopped for lunch as soon as i got off the ferry. "park it outside my house" said the old dear as i had just spotted the cafe. "its the perfect height" she said "it doesnt stop the light from getting in my windows". You cant write this stuff!

This is just round the corner from where I'm staying in Birsay. I'll post more on the monument later, but just look at the weather! Roof down all day and when the wind drops (and that doesn't happen very often in Orkney) it is even fairly warm. There was a puffin on the cliff i was told but there were hundreds of black and white birds so I was fighting a loosing battle trying to spot it.
