Yesterday, at Son-in-Law 1's suggestion, we took a trip to Gullane in East Lothian, not far from Edinburgh. His very nice mother was visiting. We had lunch at The Old Club House (very good, except that they don't cater much for vegetarians) and then took a walk. Grandson enjoyed swinging...
... and sliding.
Then we strolled along the beach.
You probably can't see clearly in this reduced-for-Blogger photo, but there are people swimming in the sea. The North Sea. Brrr. It was a pleasant day for walking, but I can tell you from experience (not recent, but memorably chilly) that even in high summer, our sea is not warm.
And lastly, also at SIL 1's suggestion, we had tea in Falko's German Bakery. Yum. I'm sure our long...ish... walk counteracted the Sachertorte that I shared with Daughter 1. There were cow creamers on the tables. I've never seen one in actuality; just read about them in P G Wodehouse. In a moment when we were all distracted by cake, Grandson picked ours up and poured a stream of milk on to the table in a most interesting way. I was impressed by the speed of our reactions in relieving him of it.
And Happy Birthday for today, Daughter 1. It was a good idea of ours, having you.
