If I still feel a bit weird about being away - it's partly because I was lucky to be a couple of days ahead of the tightening of restrictions in Scotland, so I'm both extremely grateful to be here and feeling a little bit guilty about it - I'm loving the relative freedom. It feels amazing to just be able to walk, and god knows I need the exercise.
Meanwhile I've finally seen the finished Phone Box, which looks good, and we're trying to see if we can rescue it's sister which stands about 3 miles away. I don't think the Vadlure phone box has quite the same exciting history as the Lera Voe box does - although who knows what research will throw up, but it does (and this is saying something) have a far more spectacular view. The first step is to contact BT and see if they will allow us to adopt the box.
I also had luck when it came to a second hand book find, and got something interesting from The Shetland Times Bookshop. The Shetland Times was one of my favourite places as a kid, and is still a pretty fine bookshop. It's small but well stocked, and they have some proper bargains. There's book bundles of slightly damaged stock for sale at the moment - £5.99 and some really interesting looking stuff to be had. It's not something I've seen done before but it's a great idea.
All in all it's exactly the change of scene I needed, so here's a few pictures to share.
