9 years ago today there was some local flooding. Luckily it's not happened since & new prom & flood defences have been being built this year. Due to be finished early next.

Views from my flat.

If you meet a Shetland pony at dusk, be careful they are not a njuggle, Shetland's mythical water horse.Njuggles appear friendly, tempting weary travellers, but when they feel a rider on their back they return to the depth, taking the human with them #Shetland #Scotland #folklore #horse

A cold, damp, miserable December day. Still managed some tennis, though in full winter kit, thermals & woolly hat included! Men on the next court in t-shirts & shorts. 😂 🎾

Walk by the beach today. First time in over a week, I'd missed it.
No photos today, so an old one instead from this time of year.

Have had enough of courts, but still a week to go.

Despite countless visits to the Hebrides and seeing wonderful nature, I had never seen an Otter in the wild, until this June, I stopped to photograph a bridge and then... #Otter #Nature #naturephotography #Scotland

Here's a nice feature on Mastadon you might not know about. You can decide who sees your comment on someone else's Toot.

Craft your response, then click on the globe to choose who sees it.

Globe = Everyone sees your response in their feed.
Unlisted = Everyone in the comments can read it, but not the entire world is notified.
Followers = A comment so clever you want all your followers to see it.
Mentioned people only = A side convo with the just the person or people you mentioned.

All this talk about where people are from.
I have strong Celtic origins: my mother was Irish, my father was Scottish, I was born & brought up in England.

I always say I'm half Irish, half Scottish & half English. :)

The dog has taken to asking for food, being told no, then walking round the table to ask again, as if to pretend that she is a completely different dog who might get luckier this time.

If you tell me to boost your toot I will definitely NOT boost it.

At what point do you unfollow someone that you've had the need to mute twice? Maybe one more chance?

"Where do you want the tree?"
"Just out the front somewhere"

In honour of St Andrew's Day a picture taken in Scotland.

What do you do at the top of a Munro? Why stretch of course!
I like to keep supple. :-)

Happy St Andrew's Day to all Scottish people.
