I went on an expedition to South Queenferry last week. It’s only half an hour from Edinburgh city centre (if roadworks are under control) so it seems a shame I don’t go there more often. I got a lift and we went out as group of 3. Sadly the day I picked turned out to be driech in the extreme. Never mind we holed up in the Hawes Inn and spent the afternoon sipping tea and coffee and commentating on the spectacle of the cruiseliners picking up their passengers who had been sent by coach into Edinburgh for a spot of culture and shopping. The windows of the Hawes Inn are engraved with notes made by people with diamonds but sadly my camera failed to take a decent picture of them. The Inn is famous for being a stopping off point by David Balfour in Robert Louis Stevenson’s Kidnapped.
The lesson learned go out do it anyway don’t wait for the perfect moment despite the weather we had a very jolly afternoon
