At The Port In Lerwick

There are huge fields of peat on Shetland Island. This is harvested and used as a source of energy on the island.
The above shows how peat was harvested and transported in earlier times.

The electric fense is supposed to be turned off when there are tourists petting the ponies, but they forgot to turn it off.
Now I know what it feels like to be tasered! I put my smart phone through the fence to get a better photo and thought I
was having a stroke. I almost fell on my face. There was only this one tiny warning sign shown above and it was on the fence
in a spot far away from the Shetland Pony corral. They should have had signs on all the posts near the corral. If they had,
I wouldn't have come near the fence even if they told us it was turned off. Better safe than sorry. They did turn off the
electricity after I got shocked.
The Above House And Cows Were Also On

Road Across The Airport Runway
The road goes right across the major Shetland airport! There are signals and crossing gates just like a railroad crossing.
On the way to our lunch stop our bus was able to drive right across the runway as there were no planes about to use it.
On the way back from lunch we had to stop along with another bus in front of us and wait for a plane to take off.
