Wednesday walk

I missed the last outing with the walking group, because we were up in Applecross.  We go out every other Wednesday, and so today was the day.  We walked along the coast, between the beach and two of East Lothian's many golf courses.  It was overcast but dry, and an extremely enjoyable, gentle 5 mile walk.
If you look at the horizon carefully in the photograph below, you will see the three towers of the Queensferry Crossing, the new bridge across the Firth of Forth, which is currently under construction.  Amazingly, it is progressing on schedule and, I believe, under budget.  This is not news you often hear in relation to building projects in Scotland (think ... Scottish Parliament building, Edinburgh tram)!  On completion, in about one year's time, the towers will be over 200 metres high, making it the tallest bridge in the UK.  
As we walked along the top of the beach, we had company!  There were four seals larking about in the lagoon.  I just managed to capture one of them.

  1. Looks like another great walk. Love the seals...such playful, positive animals! Not sure how anyone could ever have mistaken a seal for the Loch Ness Monster!!!!!!!!
    Happy walking!
