Shetland

Back from a quick weekend break to Shetland. The views from our hotel window in Lerwick was amazing:Niall spent a lot of time looking at divers and working out what they were:

We didn’t see many Shetland ponies, but here is one:

And, as we headed back to the airport, we had to wait as the air ambulance crossed over the road:

A beautiful place for a short break:

    Thanks so much for sharing. The concept of being able to just go to Shetland for the weekend is mind-boggling to me. I’m so happy that there was birding and yarning to be had. One thing this year-off adventure has taught me is that I need to have my weekends with my family. If that means I spend longer at school during the week, then so be it.
