At low tide The Holm of Sound is great for climbing about on and gives a great view of the wildlife in the crystal clear waters, seals, shags, gulls and grebes amongst others. I really need to re-learn my sea birds and waders up here, and get some binoculars.
We pottered about the beach for a while and Beren played with another toddler who was down there with his family, with me setting a bad example by rolling an old wheel around the beach much to their delight.
It was a stunning day with lovely views over to the Ness of Sound...
...and the Ness of Trebister
On the way home we decided we best stop at Tescos to buy some bits and bobs and had a great view of grey seals basking in the early afternoon warmth without even having to leave the car.
Shetland weather is nothing but unpredictable, so after a wonderful morning and afternoon we arrived home to find a few flakes of snow were starting fall, 10 minutes later it was white over and it just continued to fall!
