Artist's Description

Seals basking on the slipway at Scapa, Orkney Islands. These seals were so laid back that boats were launching past them and we managed to launch our kayaks right by them without disturbing them!

Selkie is the Orcadian dialect workd for seal. In Orkney, and other areas of Scotland, there are tales of selkie folk, sometimes called silkies. They come ashore and shed their skins and take human form., often dancing on the shore. If their skin is taken, they cannot return to the sea.
