Another day out and about with our visitor.
I am always very proud to show Shetland off.
I want to show visitors the Shetland I find beautiful. Perhaps not the Shetland that is in the guide books, though.
The heather, at the moment, is in bloom and looking particularly beautiful. The smell is incredible too. It really gets to you.
Making most of the non-raining weather, we drove to Snarraness – on of my favourite destinations.
We saw various fauna and flora.
Anyone? What is this bird? I have no idea and had a phalarope idea but now I am not quite sure. Any ideas? Answers on a postcard.
After that, we went to see a small Eriskay horse herd. There is a new foal this year.
I think they are beautiful.
They have a unicorn-like quality.
On our way, we met this very laid-back four-horned Shetland ram who was chillaxing by the side of the road.
He never moved, while I reversed to take a better photograph, and continued to sit there, chewing his cud. I thought he was very handsome with a very laid-back temperament.
There is nothing better than taking your time to driving around Shetland, showing folk what you find special.
