Aye, cruising season has hit Orkney tae, though so far we`ve no` run intae any bad weather trouble like the Hebrides. I saw about this on the news this morning, and smiled...folks can pay large amounts o` money for wonderful cruises but they cannae control the weather. I bet everyone had a lovely time onshore though.

Seemingly the rumour is that the chef at the Caladh Inn found himself having to cater for the 270 unexpected guests on his first day in a new job.

Swamped, one could say. Fond memories will be had by all. It is not true, is it, that the chef at the Caladh Inn solved his problem by bashing open a barrel of sauerkraut and then preparing the bratwurst en masse. Home away from home sort of thing.

If the chef at the Caladh served up several hundred seafood specials the size of the on I had from his predecessor some months back then the entire North Atlantic and its adjacent seas would be left bare.

Out of all those 270 passengers only one Austrian couple said "Thank you"? So much for the difference between Germans and their polite neighbours in the Alps.
