After the rains...

As some of you will know we had a little bit of rain on Wednesday, well actually something like a months worth in 12 hours, which caused some major problems such as at Uradale Farm near us and else where in central Shetland. Thankfully it's been a bit nicer since then!

It's been glorious today. Here's the newly refurbished 19th century pier at Sandsayre, Sandwick



And looking up the coast from it at Leebitten...


It was pretty yummy down near Sumburgh too where I had my dinner on West Voe beach...


And looking over Bressay...


As you can see the clouds have been pretty impressive at times after all that rain, but it's left it's mark. Below at Gulberwick there used to be a fine beach along with a nice footbridge over Sand Burn that Beren liked to play poo sticks on, but for now it's some where out in the bay... 


Thankfully the despite loosing their cars in the landslide at Uradale the house and family are fine, a bit of washed out beach and a bridge aren't too concerning in comparison.
