Flute lesson day and then on to Lerwick to do the last of our Christmas messages.
There were some beautifully Christmas decorated windows.
This is the Shetland Times Bookshop. Excellent (ps – they sell two of my postcard books – they were published a few years back but I am still proud of them).
The book is based on this film.
Then onto Jamieson’s Knitwear. I love the wool ball Christmas tree. Very clever.
As usual, there was the Christmas tree at the Market Cross. The tree (plus another for Scalloway) are gifted, I think, to Shetland as a gesture of goodwill from Norway to commemorate the Shetland Bus – “a Shetland based boat operation to and from Norway, that took place during the Second World War (1939 – 1945).”
The Shetland Bus, by the way, is an incredible part of Shetland’s history.
Father Christmas is called Santie or Santy here (in our house, I am sorry but he is Father Christmas and always will be). So, here he is playing a guitar at High Level Music.
Charity shop are hugely popular in Shetland and do very well. We are huge fans and many a-bargain is found. This is the Red Cross and we always pop in to have a quick rifle through.
Living Lerwick’s ran a competition for the best town centre Christmas window display.
And this is the winner! Ninian – “Ninian showcase exciting collections of Shetland knitwear designed by Joanna Hunter“
It was nice wandering down the street, seeing friends and stopping for a quick natter.
That is the way it is here. You always see someone you know.
And then we all wended our way home. The full moon was looking glorious.
