It was a dull dreich day so as we didn’t feel like riding much and having done our chores, Daisy and I took the horse-van for a good run into town to collect hay and horse feed. Then we went on to do our messages.
Surprisingly, the street was quite busy so how I managed to take a photo of the place being empty, I do not know. I saw many friends and stopped to chat. I wear a mask outside in public and can’t wear my glasses so probably missed a few too.
But it was very dark. A low November light.
There were some good shop windows. This is Anderson’s on Commercial Street.
And this was utterly gross. Yes, they are eyeballs and it is from a spectacle and eye-testing shop. However, it did make me stop and look twice just to check I believed what I thought I had seen while I walked past!
I popped into Jamieson’s Wool shop and gently herded five more curly sheep into their new field.
Lerwick couldn’t decide if it was Halloween or Christmas.
This was our lunchtime view – eating the best fish and chips from The Fort Cafe whilst sitting in the Pier carpark.
Dreich means “(especially of weather) dreary; bleak” but Lerwick is always beautiful.
An old town trying to survive in difficult times.
