Off the ferry and into the mist as we drive to our house. Can't see the
hills or the voe. Rain hits the windows; a little sun appears and then
more rain... Later the hills brighten and the sun shines so out we go. A cold
wind - icy blasts sweeping across as we stomp up the voe, a liitle blue
sky appearing, big rain clouds edging it out blotting out the far hills.
A few early Guillimots bobbing in the sea as I draw, sitting up on the
rocks at the top of our voe with the nesting Fulmars - such beautiful
birds. Twittering Wheatears hopping around me on the rocks. Blown home
clutching a wet drawing.. followed by the seals and the sound of Oyster
Catchers and Greylag geese calling as they fly overhead, the ragged
fluttering of Lapwings. Later the full moon shines over the voe.
a Shetland day.
