Aggie and Eva

Aggie and Eva by Nico Schelvis

My girls in a portrait given to me by Peter, a original water colour by Nico Schelvis, he actually ended  doing it twice as the first painting was lost in the post (on its journey from the Netherlands). Thankyou Nico, you really captured the little rascals!

Vegan Scones

Finally found them, after a sample of these back in November’s taste Shetland event. Eventtastic hidden away in Gremista industrial estate  Lerwick. I’m looking forward to the vegan breakfast apparently coming soon.

Unst Ponies

Pony stop on a afternoon outing to Unst, don’t  be deceived by his cute looks, the little white one was definitely not sharing a sandwich crust.
We also found a lovely beach a very large golf ball and then a proper castle, will go again soon and post more pictures.

Across Yell Sound

This was Becca and Dave our friends from Cumbria on there way home, we were invited up to the bridge, my goodness it was like the star ship enterprise, what a view from up there, I guess it’d be a bit different when it’s a bit rough and windy.

Up Helly Aa 2020

My friends from  Cumbria came to visit and enjoy this one with, my goodness what a awesome fiery Viking festival, the sheer sight of 1000+ flaming torches, culminating in a burning of the long boat, a year in the making.
Brave enough to party Viking style?
I’m not!!!

Stennis beach…

Vikings and pebbles. My first visit to crime drama locations around Eshanness cliffs and lighthouse. Pebble people, you won’t find better than Stennes beach! Warming up with tomato and lentil soup in the St Magnus Bay hotel in Hillswick. No seals today at the Hillswick seal sanctury, we looked over the wall, looking forward to my next visit..

Seals on the Ness

From the livingroom window we observe our resident seal collony every day. Today they were still out on the sea-weed and just before the tide came in you can see they are still resting…. Just after this photo, we went out to collect some washed up salmon pipes and with one quick spash the all were back in the water…. and swam accross to find out what we were up to..
