Below is South Ayre, a double tombolo, but all that water connecting Dales Voe and Swinister Voe has to get through somewhere, so an unexpected hop skip and a splodge were needed in parts.
The 'periodic showers and fresh winds' that stung our bodies through waterproofs lead to some great atmospheric views though.
And even a threatening mythical creature...
The wind on the top on the way back to the car was unbelievable.We struggled just to keep both ourselves and the pushchair upright, but we did! Time to get home, get warm and for me have a some pain killers and a snooze!
