Shopping Week in Stromness

The 60th Shopping Week just started here in Stromness which is pretty much the biggest week of the year. Lots of activities and festivities.


Free rides in the life-boat (our two youngest kids on the left)


and of course the obligatory bagpipes.

  • Ohhhh, I love me some bagpipes. Must be the Scots/Irish heritage that accounts for half my genes. Great shots. Would be fun to be there with you.

  • I hate bagpipes (keep them on the mainland). Must be the Orkney heritage that accounts for half my genes. 😉
