We heart Shetland.
Gorgeous photos! But my goodness, that Puffin doesn’t look real!!!
And the ponies! Love!
You heart Shetland? Sigh… me too (well, except for the 12-hour ferry journey, but there’s always flying). Just got back; can’t wait to return – though when it comes to birds, especially noisy ones, I’d bet on amorous eider drakes.
Loving your photos! Especially the puffins, possibly my favorite “shore” bird. Don’t they make a terrific noise? I found a recording of their call online, played it with the volume on high and just about scared the fur off the cats! God times….
I know an old mortar when I see one, thanks to my trip to Shetland several years ago. Can’t wait to return! Thank you!
Gorgeous photos, as always. Unsurprisingly I love the one of Mel in the Wool Store, and Mel and Emma in the bus stop. I was sorry I didn’t see you guys again before you left, but your parcels are on there way to remind you of us, and it’s not long until Octobe
I love the Shetland Islands too – although have only ever been there once, very briefly. Your photos are superb.
Someday I shall make it to the Shetland Islands and pet a SHETLAND PONY! :) I have two of my pony pettings down so far – made it to Chincoteague & Assateague Islands here in the USA and got to pet a pony just like Misty of Chincoteague, and a friend owned a Fjord. On my list still are Shetland, Dartmoor, Exmoor, and Iceland. (No scientific list, this, just pony breeds mentioned in books I loved when I was a little girl)
My family laughs at me but feeds my obsession at the same time! Hee.
And another goal is to get to the Orkney ISlands to the ornithological conservncy. Gah! Unemployment, why must you crush my dreams!
Next time you go – I’ll carry your cases for you!!
love the lighthouse
But what´s a böd?
Beautiful photos. Someday. Someday. ~~~ sigh ~~~ I would like to have yarn dyed in the colors of each photo.
Beautiful, just. The lovely sea pinks are so characteristic of the northern isles.
Love the beautiful photo’s, and the sweet little Puffins.

Malgré mes difficultés avec la langue anglaise, je fais les efforts nécessaires pour vous lire tant le plaisir de vous découvrir est agréable pour moi. Toutefois, pardonnez-moi, mais vous écrire dans votre langue n’est guère facile pour moi !
J’ai cependant envie de vous dire que j’adore votre blog, vos modèles de tricot et votre personnalité.
Je suis allée en Ecosse pour la première fois il y a quelques semaines et cela ne sera sans doute pas la dernière fois.
Merci de partager votre univers avec nous.
