4am Fright!

Last week (sorry for the delay of this post):
John joined the crew last Sunday as we continued to sail around the Shetland Islands and anchored in Sumburgh.
Monday was a sail to North Orkney with an anchorage at Otterwick on Sanday Island. We had a fair bit of drama in the middle of the night as a sudden squall developed at 4am causing the anchor to drag and the boat to drift! Luckily, we woke up and managed to get the engine on and manoeuvre away from the approaching shoreline...phew! A close one! All was then well for the rest of the night.

Pierowall  - a village off the coast of the Scottish mainland

Later in the week we spent a few days in Kirkwell (capital of the Orkney Island) where we spent the days exploring the island on bicycles!

A 24 mile bike ride!
