We arrived Seahouses in the afternoon. We were staying in The Olde School house. The weather was very nice . Latter in the afternoon we went for a stroll along the coast. This is basically a large village. There are some of the best fish & chips are available here.

The Arctic tern is famous for its migration; it flies from its Arctic breeding grounds to the Antarctic and back again each year, the shortest distance between these areas being 19,000ย km (12,000ย mi). The long journey ensures that this bird sees two summers per year and more daylight than any other creature on the planet.

We alsoย cruised around all the Islands to view nesting seabirds on the cliff faces and the Grey Seal colony at several vantage points.

Latter in the evening we took a night bus to London.
