A good walk

Today dawned frosty, but with a gentle morning light, so, after breakfast, Tilly and I went for one of our favourite walks.  A bit of country, a bit of coastline and a short walk through a wood on the way back to the car.  We had the place to ourselves, just us and the seabirds.  Oh happy day!
See above, re note below!
I love this coastline, with its distinctive landmarks - the Bass Rock above, and that's the Kingdom of Fife beyond, on the other side of the Firth of Forth.  And below, in the distance, a tiny grey North Berwick Law, presiding moodily over the town. 
Today was a calm day.  Quiet and peaceful, in stark contrast to the relentless gales of the last week or so.  Our walk was a cracking start to the weekend.


  1. Glorious colours! It's lovely that you've captured the feel around your part of Scotland so well, it's like looking in on someone else's window. Have a great week x

  2. Thanks Antonia - glad you enjoy our walks! We have a very light sprinkling of snow this morning - disappointingly little, but better than none! How about you? A x

  3. Not even a sniff of snow, just sleet or hail! It would seem strange to have snow with daffodils out already but I know the kids would love it :-)
