So - what's the weather like here in January?
Well, on Saturday we set off to meet up with the walking group. This is what it was like near us - foggy.
In 20 minutes' time, when we reached the promenade at Joppa, an eastern suburb of Edinburgh, it was like this.
We walked along the coastal path, past Fisherrow harbour.
These fishermen had been yarnbombed. They're bollards, preventing people from inadvertently (or otherwise) driving on to the prom.
It was a perfect day: blue as forget-me-nots and without a ripple on the water. You can faintly see Edinburgh's city hill, Arthur's Seat, on the horizon. It was obviously still misty there.
We kept on till we got through Prestonpans and then a little further,
to Cockenzie, where we had lunch. We'd walked for six and a bit miles and we briefly considered walking back again. But then we got the bus instead.
