Bookmark Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Aloi from guiltless reading. Take a picture of one of your favourite bookmarks, post it on your blog, and head over to guiltless reading to share a link to your post. I haven’t taken part in Bookmark Monday for almost two months, but I hope to get back to it regularly again now.
This week I’m sharing a couple of bookmarks I bought on our recent visit to Orkney. It’s where I grew up, but it is almost 20 years since I left. The bookmarks are from Skara Brae and Skaill House, two places that we visited on our trip. Skara Brae is a phenomenal place, but it’s one of the many things I took for granted growing up there. The magazine the bookmarks are sitting on is the latest issue of National Geographic, which has a feature on the many ancient Orkney sites. The page it is open to is a picture of one of the Skara Brae houses. Incidentally, my dad has a part-time job as a tour guide at Skaill House, which he enjoys as part of his retirement.
