A wee walk around the Knab before work
Some snaps from a day so nice it lent magic to every part of Lerwick. Well, most bits. People were in a good mood, everyone was chatty, the coffee at COPE (freshly roasted on the premises) tasted wonderful. It takes about 40 minutes to walk from the BBC Radio Shetland studios down past the amazing Brucefield Stores (proud to be Zetlandic, as opposed to Shetlandic) to the sea, and then up past the pitch-and-putt course ( when is it open?) to the Knab, the rocky promontory that marks one of the entrances to Lerwick's harbour. Then down towards Twageos ("two geos", or rocky inlets) with views of the island of Bressay, and the oldest and most picturesque part of Lerwick, complete with an old boat used as a garage roof.
Back to my little cubby hole in Pitt Lane, and ready for two hours on air...
