Overnight, I remembered why we don't go to Orkney at midsummer: that's when the St Magnus Festival happens, so there'd be competion for accommodation. But D. was not deterred, and has found - and booked - a house in Stromness for midsummer 2022. These are incertain times, and anything could happen in the next 50 weeks, but for the time being we have a plan, and I am very excited about it.
Meanwhile, Morph has been visiting Orkney, and sending postcards home. This entry cross-posted from Dreamwidth: comments always welcome, at either location.
