Yeah, it does do that. But when I was there, all my ferry crossings were as flat as a millpond, which was a pity, I was looking forward to some proper seafaring...Crackle said:that is, unfortunately, my abiding memory of the Orkneys. Starting with a rollercoaster ferry ride. We then hired backs and battled our way to Skara Brae (well worth a visit). We then turned around and battled our way back. In fact as an experiment, I cycled to the left and right as well. Wind against me both those ways as well: Weird
It's pretty much like that where I live. Only in my village there's no paper shop or pub. You need to walk half a mile for that.wafflycat said:You describe many a Norfolk village - well, little traffic as opposed to no traffic. I'll be happy to spend the rest of my days in Norfolk.
That would be no problem to me at all, as long as the walking is safe to do.Kirstie said:It's pretty much like that where I live. Only in my village there's no paper shop or pub. You need to walk half a mile for that.
Yeah pretty much. There's only 1 bit without pavement, and that's over a tiny humpback bridge which crosses the stream at the bottom of the hill. There's some lovely doggy walks and general walks around the place too.simonali said:That would be no problem to me at all, as long as the walking is safe to do.
I've got a bike and a dog, so getting to the pub won't be a problem!
