We have thoroughly enjoyed a visit today from a friend who lives in Edinburgh. She's a very busy girl and so we were doubly delighted to have her here for lunch before she and I went for a walk on the beach and around the headland near Tyninghame.
Our friend is a very talented artist and I know she loves colour so I couldn't resist trotting out this grated veggie salad with HFW's Asian slaw dressing. The candy stripe beetroot is enough to knock your socks off, especially sitting next to the orange of a grated carrot.
It's been a fine day today. This is across to the Isle of May in the Firth of Forth. The sea was looking remarkably peaceful after a week of whipped up white horses and crashing waves.
Further round the headland, as the late blast of sunlight began to fade, the skies were wonderful
with a beautiful light on the sea, which was fast approaching high tide as we stepped back into the wood on the way back to the car.
