Sunday dawned (well around 8.30 ish!) with a swirly mist, one minute we were if gorgeous sunshine and the next shrouded in mist – quite bizarre, though nice and warm. As we ventured down to the main beach, Broad Sands, the beach was busy but all swirly in mist.
As we walked a bit further along to ‘Our beach – Eyebroughy’ it was clearing nicely and a stunning afternoon on this deserted beach was our destination.
The sea is on its way out and beautifully clear and flat calm – perfect for playing in the shallows and on the empty firm sand.
Monday was a perfect day, hot and sunny and a little quieter as it is not a Bank Holiday here in Scotland and all the local children are back at school.
It came as no surprise to find our beach empty, though only probably a mile or so along the footpath from the main car park this seems to be enough to deter most.
This beach is such a find, absolutely beautiful – I am hard pushed to think of a nicer one – especially as we always seem to get it to ourselves!
A good day for a bit of a paddle.
Now if only I could find away to persuade Poppydog to lie in the shade and relax!
Still with 3 tennis balls and the thrower, I can almost manage the odd sit down in the sun!
Tuesday – yet another glorious day, so we headed straight along to ‘our’ beach and enjoyed another peaceful afternoon in the sun, even venturing out for a bit of a dip (not an actual swim but a good dunk!) a couple of times.
We really are having a bit of a holiday within a huge holiday – what a fabulous place we have found!
Fidra Island looking rather splendid.
Broad Sands looking much quieter and absolutely stunning with Bass Rock (on the right) and Craigleith Islands in the background.
Two thoughts of the day:
Thank you to the lovely person who found the dog bowl I dropped on my way down to the beach and had the foresight to place it on a post in full view.
Thank you to everyone else for walking by and leaving it there for me to find some four hours later!
