Groundwork Day

I'm guessing this means little to anyone else but this post records the completion of the digging bit of the shed groundwork. As I predicted the day happened again and again until today.
The shed base is 3.56x2.5x0.15
I've shifted 1.34 cu.m of topsoil.
Which sounds very little but is close to 2 tonnes.
Shifting also means extracting and grading the stones/rubble in it 'coz thats going back in.
Then getting rid of the soil.
  • The nice fruit tree man up the road.
  • Mark's mam.
  • The domestic dump.
  • Sneaking it into the wheelie bins.
The bleeding great escape.
I'm off for a big drink.

The Light! The Light!

We went for a walk (which I didn't track) from "Walks in Orkney"
From Burray out into Scapa Flow onto the sort of Island of Hunda.
The weather was very Scottish, squally blasts rolling in across Flotta and Co, then bursts of brilliant sunshine.
In between one of these walking back to Burray Village this rainbow appeared.
It really did look like this!

We found a broch!
