CHRIS MATTHEWS OUR GUEST GUIDE THAT TOLD US EVERYTHING ABOUT THE ORKNEY ISLANDS…EVERYTHING!

We checked into our Hotel in Kirkwall.  Our group was split between two close Hotels.  I checked in and joined Chris on a guided tour of Kirkwall on our way to St Magnus Cathedral where a Choral Concert was being held that night.


Then there was much anticipated beautiful dinner at the North Shore Restaurant before retiring to my room after a long day.

This was a Crab and Seafood Tart…like a Quiche that was part of one of the three best meals I enjoyed this trip.  The Third meal would be Fish Pie tomorrow at this same restaurant.
