Sometimes the sea round Orkney gets churned up by the weather and tides, and sometimes the water column is full of broken up bits of seaweed and clouded with algae. It can be so opaque sometimes that you feel like you’re swimming in sea soup! But it’s still beautiful. On those days you really see the seawater not just as a clear, neutral medium through which to see other things, but something thick with life, a rich habitat, each drop a precious microscopic word in itself.
