#TheGallery – Week 63 – 3 Word Gallery

Tempting to direct you back to my Silent Sunday post this week, where the 3 words my son hasn’t quite uttered are obviously “What the heck?” (or words to that effect).  Or back a little further to the “me and my shadow” pic with the 3 words “Keep on running!”  But that would be lazy!  Instead, I give you… (never a drumroll around when you need one, is there?)

Summer in Shetland!

Breckon Beach

Breckon Beack, YellLook at that!  Blue skies, massive expanses of beach, hardly anyone around (any guesses why?).  Yes, so the beach is a long way from anywhere.  Yes, so that’s the Arctic Ocean out there – that didn’t stop one of the more insane of our party having a swim, nor did it stop the kids from paddling.  And yes, everyone else is wearing fleeces, overcoats, thermals…  But it looks gorgeous.  And as long as you’re dressed right, it is.

From the mainland, to get to this wonderful beach, you head north.  Take the ferry to Yell and keep on going until you get almost to the ferry terminal for Unst.  Then you turn left and follow the signs.  When you’re done at the beach, head back to the Wind Dog Cafe for some fantastic food and entertainment – there’s a small library, WiFi, knitting, tapestry, a jigsaw on the go.  Pitch in and enjoy yourself!

That photo was taken on a Friday.  Saturday, the rain set in for the following week.  Hey-ho.

  1. Yup, that’s just what I remember it like, beautiful, clear sea, empty beaches, sunny skies (some days)… the boys just saw the pics and wondered where they were in them as they thought they were ones I had taken.
    Hubs thinks the want I have to move up there is akin to a holiday romance, though apparently my arguments are convincing that I am actually serious. Just need to find a job…

    1. They are! And they’re all so isolated that you’ve usually got them to yourself. Downside is that it’s very hard to find an ice-cream van when you need one.

  2. Alright, smarty, that works. That’s the way to do three words, though not sure you need all the other words to describe why you chose your three words. The three words with the picture say it all. You win!

  3. i don’t believe it! so, so beautiful… summer in a day! i dream of such beaches and solitude – might have to bring my own ice cream though… thank you for sharing the photos – they have brought some sunshine to a very wet glasgow
