About us

We are a hard working, family of eight. Swimming in the sea when we aren't busy on our small holding. Daddy dragon has to work away a lot, so this blog is to let him keep up with our adventures at home.

Folklore all around us

The hatchlings and I enjoy taking walks any day the wind is not blowing too strong.

Meanwhile, I am currently writing a book on Orkney folklore, 

and since I started researching,

Orkney no longer looks the same.

Let me share with you,

some of the things we have seen along our adventures.


A house within a house.

That house is actually Clestrain Hall, where John Rae was born. 

(John Rae is the explorer credited with finding the northwest passage.)


Land trow?


A selkie on the shore.


St. George?


And a pipe band at the Lammas fayre.
