Do the Bus Stop






Ive been watching a great documentary on the Islands surrounding Britain.. My cousin has moved to one of these islands in the last 5 years so I was interested to see what life is like in such a remote part of the world! I was touched by the strong support systems they create, they have to all pitch in and get along! It was amazing.  I also love the way they make sure they celebrate their community on Saturday nights at the town hall :)


On the Island of Unst, the most northerly island in the Shetlands..they have created a famous bus stop!  Over the last 10 or so years it's had different themes.  Ahh now wouldn't this make you smile  waiting for the bus!

OMG that is just too pretty for words. I could wait at that bus stop for hours (so long as I had a good book and there were no cows around). Thanks Cloudbusting!

Andrea, my partner sent me your blog this morning because he knows I'm a sucker for lovely, thoughtful, quirky blogs. I commented on the bus stop without scrolling alot further because i was busy. Now I see that you had my book (Tensy Farlow) featured a few weeks ago! This was a total coincidence ! Thank you, it just shows how like minds attract. Don't you just love serendipity? ;)
