Departure Imminent

10am local time here in Lerwick; ETD is now 12noon. Forecast is for light winds for several days; hopefully they won’t be so light that we’re motoring a lot. But as with any sailing trip: what we see is what we’ll get.

A quick hodge-podge of photos from the past few days here in Shetland…
