About us

We are a hard working, family of eight. Swimming in the sea when we aren't busy on our small holding. Daddy dragon has to work away a lot, so this blog is to let him keep up with our adventures at home.

Goodnight storm

After storm force gales and heavy rain, 

the volume outside gentles,

and the sun sets peacefully.

A beautiful start to the day

As the sun comes up here in Orkney, the sky is often painted in these beautiful hues.

As autumn dabbles in and out, the mist returns, our wooly winter duvet, and gently softens the world.

Wishing you a gentle start to your week.


Today, with the sun shining down on the water, it was easy to imagine heaven on earth.

She tastes it.

Tests it for it's beautifying and hair styling qualities....

And it's a winner!

Climbing trees, waiting for appointments.

Picking daisies in the grass.

sunny day.
