Photos of Shetland - Part 3

This time I'm sharing signs.

I found two signs in the ladies room at the Peerie Shop Cafe that I liked.  First, this whimsical poem:

And this instruction that gives good advice about turning on the cold water tap as well as the hot water.  I don't know if they meant "scald" or if "scold" is a Shetland term.

Scalloway Castle - don't forget to lock up the castle at the end of the day!

Large Shetland Wool Week sign on the side of Mareel:

How is a knitter to resist going into Jamieson & Smith with this welcome sign painted on the window?

In case of emergency, break glass?  This isn't a sign, but cute and humorous.  A pane of glass was missing in this phone box and someone hung a piece of knitted lace where the window should be.  The phone booth can be found near the Shetland Times Bookshop on Commercial Street.

Fun stuff. Gotta love the signs in Scotland. Maybe a spelling lesson? Thanks for taking us along on your trip.
