I needed to go to Lerwick (hay, sheep food, stuff for pizza tonight and my visitor’s Shetland chocolate requirements – Puffin Poo) and so we went.
It was funny weather. I left home giving Daisy strict instructions about what if there was thunder/lightening – it was very close this morning (nothing happened apart from a few drops of rain – but, still, I worry).
Messages (shopping) done, and Karen and I sat on the harbour front eating white pudding and chips (Karen is now a convert) while watching the harbour traffic.
A boat came in from, I think, a tour, with an accompanying grey seal.
I have never seen this before and it was lovely to see.
This seal was wonderful.
He was playing the game.
Working the audience.
He had A Winning Smile.
It was a superb sight, as we ate our delicious traditional Shetland lunch.
It was very evident that this grey seal was an old pro.
And this made me instantly think of another…..
Someone else who knows how to work the crowd with his Winning Smile
Darling not-so-little Lambie who spends the best part of his morning smiling sweetly so I will feed him Rich Tea biscuits!
