Shetland Island Trip Part 5 (picutre heavy)

How we got lucky enough to have such nice weather during our 4 day stay on Shetland is beyond me, but from what everyone has told me, the rain is usually an everyday occurrence during October.  After the ferry ride from hell, I'm guessing we got a small reprieve. 

We decided to stroll about Lerwick a bit in the morning, the weather was perfect for it with us only needing long sleeves and light jackets.

Postal "tube"  I was intrigued by the cast iron tubes used for letters. 

This entire street is a no parking zone.........I

Shetland's Biggest Department store? ????  Mercy me.

Nothing says suppertime like meat hanging in the window.

This is me, being me.  Dorky  (No super hero costume, but that doesn't stop me) 


  1. Half of your pictures didn't download for me, but maybe next time.

    Those 'postal tubes' you saw are all over G.B. and originated from here in Bath. We are used to them, and now they are national treasures. There are Victorian ones just 200 yards from where I write this.

    The Shetlands look good - I must go there.

    1. I really enjoyed our stay and the history of the UK. The people could not have been kinder to us.

  2. Fish bigger than the plate

  3. The fish and chips looks EPIC. Now I'm kinda hungry :-)


He who angers you, controls you.

And my favorite.......You can't control what others say or do, but you can control your reaction.
