Typical one-way road with pull out to allow passing.

Golf course is on the right.

Enjoying the sport of fishing.

Country homes.

Some Shetland Island trees!

Time to leave....


More Viking influence.

I was rather impressed with the Shetland Islands!

Important Opportunity to Experience Hurtigruten

(from Wikipedia)
View portions of the voyage of the Hurtigruten ship, NordNorge, on her Norwegian coastal journey completed on Wednesday morning, June 22nd.

When you have the link in view, you can then view any portion of the cruise by clicking on the voyage map to the left of the link. (Service is spotty inside fjords--Geiranger fjord and Trollfjord.)

(Please note:  I am not on this ship at this time.  I just happen to love Hurtigruten and thought you might like to be on this virtual cruise! Click on "View portions....." to go to the link.)
