Today we fled from wedding plans and any housework that needed done and headed up the coast to Stonehaven.
We took the coastal path from the harbour up to Dunnottar Castle. It is a precarious walk along the cliffs, with a sheer drop to the side of you, as you climb along the narrow track, but well worth it for the stunning views!
The weather held while we walked to the castle, but we lucked out on the way back and got soaked to the skin. We really should buy Kagools! I know they aren't the height of fashion, but they would have come in handy today! It was actually rather scary walking back through the wind and heavy rain, I thought I was a goner a few times. Converse boots really don't have good grip!
Note to self: Buy some suitable walking gear!
We had a picnic in the grounds of the castle. Baguettes spread with pesto and filled with mozzarella, tomato, avocado and basil leaves, with a good grinding of black pepper! I wasn't all that organised and forgot to bring water, so I had to drink some of Graham's Pepsi Max. I am not a big fan of fizzy juice, yuck!
We arrived back in the market place, soaked through and chilly. So off to the pub for a pint of cider for me and pepsi for Graham. Guess who was driving?
The day was ended with a bag of chips, eaten on the beach, before we made our weary way home!
