...as the temperature fell a bit below average and a NE wind of gale / strong gale force whooshed in. It was therefore just the day to go to the cliffs at Yesnaby to enjoy the weather to the full.
If one turns left from one's landing point at Yesnaby, a short walk along the grassy clifftops
takes one to this😀❗️❗️❗️
We saw something yesterday that we had not ourselves seen before. What at first sight looked like snow was whipping up and over the clifftop.
This in fact was foam churned by the pounding waves to a froth that was then carried up and over the cliff!
Getting to Yesnaby from the Creel is easy. This is what Google Maps suggests. (We went there by another route but it's more or less the way we drove back). This route takes you past the Ring of Brodgar and the Standing Stones of Stenness, two extra treats.
I like to take photos and am fond of clichés - so I'll say I find them to be worth a thousand words.
