Yesterday, I had to go to the dump and as always was struck by what a wonderful dump we have in St Margaret's Hope: it has to be the dump with the best view in the UK 😃. People would pay more than good money to have a view like this, but I suppose here in Orkney it's nothing special compared to the myriad better views to be had.
So here's my entry for the UK's dump with the best view:
It's a nice tidy dump, too. Should I organise tourists walks to it? But I'm always happy to be proved wrong, so if anyone has a better dump...
Of course, if one measure that against the view from the Creel (plug, plug), then there's no comparison. This was yesterday, mid-morning. The first windless day for a little while:
It wasn't that sort of picture postcard pretty just a couple of days ago. Scapa Flow was letting it rip a bit then as wind drove both spray and raindrops against the windows.
I didn't even want to go outside to take the picture, although it was very enjoyable seen from the warmth of my sitting room.
Or this morning, when the cold spell has made it look like this
PS. The last two pictures were taken from my house next door to the Creel
which is just out of frame to the right
I like to take photos and am fond of clichés - so I'll say I find them to be worth a thousand words.
