Happy new to you all.
After 7 weeks at home I thought it was time to get back to work, the office phoned, told me about a job North East of the Shetland Islands, sounds good to me!
So I left home on Sunday, major work going on on the tube, big delays, finally made it to Heathrow, now more delays, flight an hour and a half late. Arrived Aberdeen just after midnight. After a quick meeting in the morning it was off to the airport again, and guess what, yeah more delays, this time five hours.
Arrived in the Shetlands at around 1600, chilled for a couple of hours until we were told there would be no helicopter today. 1800 we were put on a coach and taken to a hotel 45 minutes away, checked in, had dinner and went to bed, up at 0530, back to the airport early, now more waiting.
1300 we were told all helicopters cancelled, another 45 minute drive to a hotel.
At least this time it was still light, well almost, I had to get out, hat and coat on I braved the Islands winter weather, with light fading fast I made my way to the harbour, not a lot to see and even less to photograph, I managed to click off a few, but nothing to write home about, cold wet and now hungry I made my way back to the hotel, and this was all I had to show for it.
This looked like a nice street to do a bit of shopping, but all I could manage was window shopping as everything was closed.
