Today was a day in town so off Floss and I went to Lerwick to “do our messages” – This is Scottish for shopping!
We didn’t have much to get, just drop off more woolly sheep and obviously go to the Chocolate shop, Merrie Dancers amongst other places.
If you want a pony, they can be found here!
And yes, we sampled. It would be rude not to.
With just over four weeks until Christmas, the street (Commercial Street) was in a very sad state. Just about empty. Not good. Not good at all. This year, I am going to do my very best to buy local.
Everything achieved, (bar the food shop), so now lunch! We took our freshly cooked fish and chips (oooh, the smell when it is all wrapped in the paper and in the car) and chose our lunch spot carefully. Today’s view was at the top of Knab Road, Lerwick and we sat in the car watching the world go by, seagull-style.
How’s that for a view?
We were all alone. Not a soul in sight. The perfect lunch spot.
