Orkney June 2005

Page 1

These were taken between 2nd to the 11th June while Chris and I were on holiday with mum. It was our first time on Orkney and it won't be our last I suspect. There are a lot, split over 2 pages of which this is the first. Some of them are not exactly clear but included as they show the atmosphere of what we saw and I have tried to arrange them by subject.
