Moder-Dye Follows ...
Kev is an Outdoor Access Officer who lives in Scalloway, Shetland, and who runs the Moder-Dye Blog. His recent description of a trip to Papa Stour provides a good read and some compelling images such as the one above. The Moder-Dye reference is to a time-honoured way of navigation - from the Old Norse 'Mother Wave' and the undercurrents that apparently could be sensed moving towards the land. It was particularly useful in foggy weather and here appropriately follows ... Mother's Day.
