Great photos from the Fetlar Riviera and gourmet restaurant. And of course, no photo sequence is complete without at least one of Mac...

Lovely pics--glad you had such a nice summer! I recognize the collie staring obsessively at the tennis ball :) But what in the world is Hnefatafl ?????

LO, it's the sound you make when you've got a bit of a cold...

Great blog but once again the local terms boggle outsider understanding; such as "Hnefatafl". It looks like an advanced form of Ludo ... explanation, please! What one can learn on IB .... better than a distance course at the Uni, any day. "Guga", that shell thing, Fank: a whole new world is revealed (except of couse most of it is an old world). Peace be with you.

Maybe a nice autumn but I saw in last Sunday's Observer that the Met Office have officially confirmed that the summer of 2008 was the wettest in recent decades (what about last year then, do i hear someone muttering?). It was certainly my wettest summer for decades. The Altalntic synoptic chart shows the Mother of All Highs will drift SE and then SW leaving you all right in the path of autumnal depressions again. Enjoy the sun whilst you can!
Barney from Swithiod a contented smirk
But, as we in the Northern Isles keep banging on, we have had one of our best summers ever. This is no exaggeration. Parental Units have been able to go walking once a day every day for two months without recourse to outerwear. It has been truly memorable in many ways!
