Hey, guys, I thought I’d do a little catch-up post sharing some photos from last weekend. I’ve never really been the kind of person who gets excited about summer weather, my Scottish bones find warmth difficult… Winter and dark evenings have always been my favourite… I’ve noticed a lot of change within myself, since turning 25 – my view on life has changed. I went from feeling young, carefree living a life I felt would never end… I mean know life isn’t forever but the thought of getting older and eventually dying was something that never crossed my mind. Now it’s something I think about daily, I’m so conscious of how quick months and years pass by. I found that this year more than ever that I’ve found the dark night’s anxiety-inducing. With weekends feeling so short due to it getting dark so early, for the first time in my 26 years I was excited about the clocks going forward.
We started off our drive by heading towards South Queensferry to take in the view of the new Queensferry Crossing, it was looking spectacular with a crystal blue background. It was on route to Aberdour, a small village in Fife, with a beach hidden away. With bright blue skies and almost warm weather, the beach looked wonderful, it was the perfect day…. it’s the best medicine for the mind – Clear skies for a clear(er) mind.
The new Forth Bridge The Queensferry Crossing is now standing tall and it really is incredible! Especially alongside the Forth Road Bridge and the iconic Forth Rail Bridge. I’m so excited for the Queensferry crossing to open to catch a brand new view of the 2 current bridges as I’ve never seen them before. On our way home from Aberdour, we stopped off in North Queensferry literally under the Forth Rail Bridge, where we watched the Sunset. We picked up some Fish & Chips from a Chip shop in Inverkeithing (Maurizio) it was actually really nice, and I would highly recommend if you’re in the area. With the sound of cars in the distance and the odd train travelling overhead, it still felt so tranquil… I love a good sunset its an automatic mood lifter for me, it was the perfect end to the first Spring adventures of the year!
