Trip to the coast.
Good evening J-land, this entry should have been put in yesterday but we had not downloaded the software for my camera since we got the computer repaired so I will tell you about my trip now instead. Yesterday was a bit windy up here so we thought a trip to the coast would be in order. We don't live far from the coast so we are very lucky. This is Kinghorn in the pictures which is a small town directly across the River Forth from Edinburgh. It has this small harbour and is a very good place to go birdwatching not that there was very much there yesterday but it was lovely just sitting in the car watching the big waves.The picture no 2 is of Inchkeith Island. There are quite a few small islands in the Firth of Forth. As we were driving to Kinghorn yesterday we saw the new car ferry which runs from Inverkeithing to Rotterdam and it was making heavy weather of the rough sea. We did this crossing a few years ago but we had to go to Hull to pick up the ferry. The other pictures we taken with Stuarts paintings in mind it will give him something to paint during the winter. Today we have managed to get a 4 night break booked in Strathpeffer a lovely little village just north of Inverness, so I will get the camera busy. The last time we were there the Autumn colours were spectacular so heres hoping they are like that this time. I did not have my digi camera when we were there last time as I was given it as a long service award last year so am looking forward to having all these shot to take. Well there is the usual queue for this pc so I will say goodnight and god bless. Joan.
