Golden Rings of Brodgar

Langwell had another beautiful Sunday to wake up too.  After coffee and drop off at a birthday party, the Welshman (husband) and I took Lou Lou out to the Ring of Brodgar.  A Neolithic ring of stones, which recently have been described as the original Stonehenge.  In other words, the circle of stones found all over Britain originated here in Orkney!  I recommend watching the BBC series Britain’s Ancient Capital…Secrets of Orkney.  The archaeology here in Orkney is world class, and we have a full tourist season visiting the sites.  But now in the end of January we are pretty much alone around the stones.  We have a large population of swans on the lochs, but my camera lens does not quite capture the beauty of the ‘Queen’s bird’.    The golden is of course Lou Lou, who is getting muddy as possible and who won’t get in the water!  Not typical golden behavior.  We are in contact with a local breeder so we are on the way to breeding and having a second (well more like anywhere from 4-8puppies)  addition to our household.  Enjoy the pictures!
