I feel like crap.
My sleep is crap.
And I am not feeling the love for anything today.
So, to divert myself and my lack of lustre, I created this comic strip from yesterday’s photos.
Then, having helped a friend try to get a pony back into its’ field (having found it had already jumped over), I went out and about with my camera.
This is Foula – with the haar coming in from the sea – a haar is a cold sea fog. It hangs off the coast of Shetland threatening to come in and create havoc with all air traffic.
Lupins – Lupinus nootkatensis – these grow everywhere in Iceland. We have been given some for our garden. I hope they take over.
As ever, I am drawn to Shetland ponies. With interested ears tipped forwards, they always capture my heart. This mare was no exception.
This is a rare (according to Wikipedia) four-horned Shetland ram. No, not a Jacob ram, but a pure-bred Shetland ram. I cannot imagine Lambie with four horns. He struggles enough with his two little nubbins and even then needs therapy if one falls off.
The loch nearest the sea was steaming – these past few days, we have had some lovely hot weather. The enveloping haar creates a sudden drop in temperature and thus this mist appears.
I walked the dogs on the beach and marvelled at the clear glass-like sea water.
Today, as it was hot, BeAnne had her final summer coat strip.
She looks so much better for it and enjoyed feeling cool. Much thinner too.
Remember Orville from The Rescuers!? Ha ha!
The tirricks are back (Arctic Terns). I totally failed to take any good photos.
I told you today was not my day. I need a decent night’s sleep.
