Scotland 6: Day 21
03.19.18 | Ferry Terminal | 13:41
Today it finally feels like springtime (at least it does in Stromness)! As I left my hotel this morning, it was perfect! Just a slight breeze, but no need to wear anything bigger than a light jacket. This is the part of Scotland that I’m excited for- hopefully I won’t have to wear my scarf any more.
Sadly, I only spent one night here and am now headed back to the mainland. I haven’t done a whole lot of exploring today, because I had to do laundry. I’m out of socks, and I’ve been wearing this same pair of pants for the last 3 days. That means it’s overdue. This is a great area, and there’s so much more that needs to be explored.
Instead, I sit in the the terminal, even though my ferry doesn’t leave for a couple hours. I already walked down to the CoOp to buy some laundry soap, and I’m not in the mood to drag my big ole backpack anywhere else. So today is going to be a movie day. Once I leave on the ferry, it should only take about an hour-and-a-half to get to Scrabster.
Thurso Hostel | 21:14
It’s so great to be back in Thurso! When the ferry arrived at Scrabster, I decided to walk all the way into Thurso. The walk was a pretty good workout, since I had my huge pack on my back. While making my way down the road, it was great to call and speak with my parents.
