This week is the 'no money because it's the end of the month' week for Dave and I. Yesterday, for free entertainment, we walked to Broughty Ferry, a little seaside town (4 miles!!)outside Dundee and back. I took loads of photos in an attempt to get my photography mojo back, and it worked a little bit.
We walked along the esplanade there
Brought Ferry Pier
View from Esplanade
Brought Castle (and some branchy stuff)
Then walked along the beach in the very strong wind
Dave on his lonesome- this is my favourite of the photos
We spent a while trying to find a not very windy spot to eat our picnic lunch (jam sandwiched and oatcakes with Crowdie), somewhat unsuccessfully!
Beach bridge - aren't they cool?
Picnic - looks sparse, but this way we only had to make
sure one thing didn't blow away!
And then there was the walk home
Dave found this big stick leaning against the sand bridge.
We like to think someone left it there for the next person
to walk along the beach with, so we left it
Castle from the outskirts of the Ferry
A long walk home. we live up a huge hill, near the boatyard you can see.
You can also see the huge rain-clouds. We got home before it rained properly though!
As I type, I'm sitting on our bed, with Dave beside me, also on his laptop! We've spent the late morning and early afternoon watching things on iplayer, and I've been reading Nick Hornby (whilst Dave listens to Springsteen which is very appropriate). Clearly, you really can have a very nice weekend for free! I'm off to make some more tea, and read some more, but do leave me stories of you weekends, and of your favourite free things to do.
