Day 3 - Friday, July 21 - Part 1

Today was a full day -- and to give you the full picture, I'm going to split it up into 2 (or maybe 3) parts -- we'll see how many photos I just have to share LOL!

Early morning Busta Breakfast -- and as our bus didn't leave until 9:30, we had plenty of time for a walk up the road.

Busta House overlooks the water, and is surrounded by green fields full of sheep!

This is a typical "rural" Shetland house just up the road from Busta -- sheep at the front door, the back door, just about everywhere! The actual yard area is fenced to keep the sheep out!

In July, the wild flowers were everywhere! It was gorgeous!

The Busta sheep were everywhere also -- these were determined to get to the grass on the other side.....goes to show that they've heard of that old saying.....

These sheep were playing King of the Castle........

Back to the bus, and off we go.....we're heading West and we stopped for a photo shot here --this is the community of Whiteness.

Our first official shopping opportunity of the day was at (click on the logo above to go to their web site) When I visited in 2003, I purchased a small gold charm -- a sweater on a jumper board. This year, I just had to have this silver Celtic knot bangle -- it's gorgeous!

After the skirmish, er shopping was over, we were back in the bus and headed for our main visit of the day -- the Jamieson's Spinning Mill in Sandness, on the West coast of Shetland -- to be continued!

  3. Your photos are beautiful! I have been admiring Fair Isle knitting for a long time now and really enjoyed seeing how the yarn is made and the beautiful landscape of the Shetland Islands.
