Down by the sea…

Friday has taken over from Tuesday as my adventure day. This week was a really good one. We took a wee trip to Culzean Country Park & had all the fun.

Culzean castle, formal garden with  large decorative water fountain on lawn

I started the outing by throwing up in a car park, so I was really hoping the day picked up. It totally did. We had a picnic lunch (I stuck to water )in a gorgeous courtyard & then headed down to the sea. The boy has been asking to go to the beach for ages & Auntie ly has been yearning for the calming waves, excitement ensued. There’s no guarantee of a sunny July in Scotland, but grey clouds didn’t impede our jubilation. The beach was almost entirely empty, it had a conveniently large log for sitting & sand castle supplies were abundant. We all bloody loved it.

Once we shook the sand from our crevices it was time to capture the castle. Atop the ramparts awaited a serene view & rest for the older members of our party. Meanwhile our ickle companion exuberantly explored the castle grounds.

I always find being close to the sea very calming. It did me good to combine a spot of serenity with a big scoop of rascalling. The further reduction of lockdown that comes into force this week will allow me to restart my life somewhat. I’m both excited & nervous about tackling things like trains in the time of covid. Thus, it was extra nice to dip my toes in the water & recharge before facing the world.

Pure shores….

A few weeks ago I went on a wee road trip with my sister, Billy & Seb. We set off on Sunday morning in dubious weather to check out Elie. It never fails to surprise me how beautiful Scotlamd is. We drove through glorious scenery, growing more excited as we began to spy glimpses of the sea. I had been craving the sea for a while, something about the endless sky & lapping water at the beach always calms me. 

On arrival the unpredictable weather was for once in our favour. The sun shone on our seaside floricks. Seb had an absolute ball meeting lots of new doggie friends & exploring the gentle waves. The two legged members of our party relaxed with a yummy picnic & some chat. We of course also took advantage of our surroundings for a blog shoot.
