Lerwick, Shetland Islands - Mavis Grind

Mavis Grind - the only place in the UK where you can throw a rock from the North Sea to the Atlantic Ocean.  This is a very narrow strip of land.

 When I came home to do additional research on the sights that were visited. I learned that I had totally missed the rock wall that is hidden behind this crowd.
 This is not my photo.  It is the best photo that I could find for the geological sampling rock wall.  Credit goes to the blog:  I am going to check with my aunt to see if she was able to get a photography of this wall.

Back to my photos.  The area is beautiful.  It is a narrow isthmus.  These photos are of the Atlantic Ocean to the west of the road.

 This is the view of the North sea to the east of the road.
