U3A Walking Group - August 2018

by Tim Wright - 16:59 on 24 August 2018
Twelve of us set off from Marwick Bay in full wet weather gear to walk to Birsay Village. The forecast was for a very high risk of heavy showers. The cliffs at Marwick didn't detain us long as the birds had flown some weeks ago. A group photo at the Kitchener Memorial was taken in full sun.
The walk down to Birsay Bay was dry and we had terrific views of the surf around the cliffs and across to the Brough and Noup Head. Our coffee stop on the cliff was sunny. Heading past the Birsay Bay Tea Room a large black cloud heading across the bay sped us back to the cars. Three minutes later a torrential downpour occurred needing double speed windscreen wiper action on the cars returning drivers back to Marwick Bay. Then lunch for some of us at the Orkney Brewery, tired but dry despite the Rain Gods' plans for the day.
The next meeting will be FRIDAY 21st September to walk Wideford Hill to Wideford Cairn and back down the tractor path to Picky Centre. There will be a coffee stop at Westbank St Ola, with luck, on the way down. More details nearer the day when we get an idea of the forecast.
