This week’s photo challenge, path, takes me down an unusual path — crossing the man-made causeway at the Brough of Birsay in the Orkney Islands. It was an exercise in patience, as we had to get a list of the tides and schedule our visit around low tide. It was worth the wait. We couldn’t get enough of the history of places such as this…I feel like traveling through Scotland the way we did, staying in places for several days at a time, gave us a taste of the present day, and a yearning to learn more of the past.
We often think of our lives as filled with paths — choices taking us down unique adventures looking toward the future. This vacation was both, as John and I made new memories for ourselves as we went down paths to the past that shaped the future. That’s a lot of time travel there. 🙂
Here’s some more from our visit:
