Decent weather greeted us today, overcast and cold, windy but no rain. Off to a slow start because we had to pack up and get everything in the van, so we left at about 11. Our first stop was The Broch of Gurness Broch in a week filled with these historic sites and they were starting to look alike. All interesting but difficult to differentiate photographically. That was a short stay and then back to The Ring of Brodgar standing stones, which were once again spectacular this time in day light.
We then went to visit Harry Potter! He was quite the character, throwing pots for 30 years. He also sells smoked fish, by the way.
Finally, hungry for lunch we made our way back up to Appie’s where the food is always good for a late snack. We returned to Woodwick House and shot the property as the sun was low to the horizon, making memories that would have to last until the next visit.
One last stop to Helgi’s for dinner and then to the ferry. The ferry was an unexpected treat, spacious clean sleeping cabins with a great shower! The next morning we met for a cholesterol packed breakfast and off we went to explore Shetland in a new, bigger van.
