Going to North Berwick Playa

I’ve been missing the sea lately, so although the weather wasn’t great we took the train to North Berwick yesterday. It’s a lovely little coastal town only a 30-minute train ride from Edinburgh. It was low-tide when we were there, so it was perfect for some rockpooling. All we found was a drowned crab, lots of smaller crab carcasses and a few living ones. Plus a couple of golf balls from the nearby course (that we took home with us).

Running Up That Hill

Posted on

As the weather in Edinburgh has been amazingly sunny I decided to go for a run to get to know my new area. I ended up in Holyrood Park that is basically on our doorstep and that largely consists of the 250 m high hill Arthur’s Seat. I really wanted to take some nice photos for my blog so I went back home to get my camera, and finally got around to climb the damn hill! It only took me around 10 minutes, so this can definitely be a part of my exercise routine.
