    I took a nice run to the seaside today by way of Pathead, Haddington and East Fortune ending up in North Berwick. The town was very busy as is usual when the sun is out. On the way out towards Dundar I stopped at a little cafe place and had the most expensive coffee and a scone ever.:eek: Anyway, it's only money and as far as I know I can't take it with me.;)
    Here are a few pictures just to prove that the sun does shine in Scotland now and then.

    The Bass Rock which is home to more than a few sea birds.

    A lovely 120 mile trip spoiled only by a slight delay on the way home caused by someone managing to turn a car upside down just north of Stow on the A7.

    When I were a lad we holidayed every year in a caravan just outside N Berwick. Great beaches. Rosie memories enhanced by time no doubt. Yellowcraig IIRC near Dirleton.

    You're bang on there Tone. :eek:
    I am a very proud Scotsman, but sometimes I think it would be nice to see more of that great golden orb in the sky. I look at Wimbledon and I think are we in the same fekin country ???
    Certainly last week wasn't that great and I had man flu which didn't help.

    But today ---- wow, I don't think it got dark at all last night.:thumbsupanim: Was up early doors, took in a quick tootle out the west, absolutely stunning, just back. Then I think, well maybe I could be in a worse place in the UK, ------ like N Ireland.:D They seem to be getting a lot of wet stuff just now, feel their pain.:(

    Next time I'm out in the rain Tony, I'll post a couple of pics.
    Funny thing is, even when the Highlands are dreich, still looks amazing
    And if it was sunny all the time, it would be over populated :p

    I have just come back from a week in Sussex/Surrey. It is definitely several degrees warmer down there than here in Northern England. Inverness is further North than Surrey is south so the difference probably even more noticeable. It’s the heat in the sun not the actual shade temp that’s most noticeable.

    But I will tell you what, I wouldn’t trade those several degrees for Northern or Scottish scenery, Northern or Scottish attitude (I find the people really weird down south) and especially not the Scottish roads. It’s fecking busy everywhere down there.
