more wind

A very windy day.
We skip some of the coastline. It is flat and rather uneventful around here, especially compared to what we have already seen. At Ollaberry we have to hold on our ice-creams tightly so that wind does not take them with it.
Some fence climbing, some mud and swamp. Some angry arctic terns. We watch hay-making and have a good view on Sullom Voe oil terminal, one of the biggest in Europe.
A sheltered campsite is essential today. Big is our surprise when we find a small forest in Sullom. This miniature ecosystem makes for a perfect wind-proof camping ground, whether it is meant for that or not. Wind chases above us but down at the tent level just mild raindripping can be heard.
24 km of walking.
