We've Arrived On Shetland
This is out there! And up north! Arrived early evening to crisp, cool, sea air. A few photos then to bed. Our Hotel! Out our window at 11:00 PM!!! What the locals call the "simmer dim" Night. Walking through Lerwick, Shetland's capital tomorrow and a visit to Jamison's and Smith Yarn. Will include a talk with a fleece expert who will talk to us about the various breeds on Shetland and the fleece to yarn process! Let the sheepy fun begin! Baahhhaaaa! Mary PS - there are 23,000 people on Shetland and 14Xs that many sheep!
