Chillin' with the UK's most remote scampi and (superb) chips
A glorious day of bright sunshine and snow, though things are now looking a bit iffy for tomorrow. It's snowing heavily and tomorrow I'll either have to cadge a lift to Lerwick with Susan (and her Toyota Landcruiser) or get the bus. Either way, excitement is promised!
Today, though, we stayed put, with a couple of minor-league dogwalks and a fine lunch at the St Magnus Bay Hotel, where the chips are particularly wonderful and the portions are massive. I love scampi. A game of pool, a pint of Belhaven and two perfectly friendly sheepdogs on the lawn.
Tomorrow, though, may (will) be quite another day.
