Great Journey ๐Ÿด Day 656

great journey ๐Ÿด day 656 here on the right i call gerd turns off directly and we

"Turn right here!" I shout, Gerd turns directly and we drive one of the many dead ends to the end. This is where they are supposed to be, the "Whaligoe Steps".

The visitors' car park is almost full: 2 of the 3 spaces are occupied. We get ready for the hike (which here always means: rain jacket!) and off we go: 250 ft down the cliffs. The units of measurement are also a thing, we have to convert all the time. One foot (ours) is about 27-30 cm long (I measured, I have a tape measure in my sewing and knitting bag), so we have to go down about 75 metres.

So we descend step by step and are rewarded with a beautiful view. The rocks here are coloured in layers, like tree cakes, and the birds pose for our camera.

When we almost want to start the ascent, we see "something" swimming in the water. It looks at us, basks in our attention and then performs the most beautiful water ballet in the crystal clear water. We stay. Watch her and enjoy. After about 10 minutes the show is over, "our" seal says goodbye and lets us move on.

Full of self-produced happiness hormones, we no longer mind the slippery steps (oh yes, it's raining again) to the top.
