After a lovely stay at our B and B, we were excited to head off to Aberdeen Airport to pick up Ian and Suzanne. Flights were on time, and in typical Suzanne fashion, we heard her before we saw her in Arrivals! What a joyous reunion with our dear friends from Canada!
We decided that rather than visiting museums and what not in Aberdeen, we would take advantage of the lovely day we had ( mainly sunny and 15C) and get some lunch stuff and do some walking with a picnic lunch!
Of course, we all know there is only one way to embark on an adventure!!! Superheroes it was!!!
You can just see the silhouette of the castle in the far distance! As we approached the castle the panoramas were wonderful!
We even ventured down to the seashore to do a bit of beach combing…
The North Sea can be nasty, as we saw yesterday, but today it was almost tame!… A beautiful day for a walk… And Lisa, you would have been proud of me… I was walking at pace and no stops other than for lunch!!!(no back pack either!!) While down at the seashore I found the perfect stone to represent all the love shared during this trip ….
So happy to have met such wonderful people while in Spain, experience the love and support from folks back home, and today, to celebrate the arrival of our great friends….
…. And of course, Lisa comes to the rescue of a poor donkey along the way!!! This is Lisa’s last day of walking… Tomorrow she takes the bus back to Santiago, and Friday she flys home to her family!!!
Tomorrow for us will be exciting… A drive through some beautiful highland scenery and ending in Dufftown, the heart of the Speyside Whisky Trail… Not sure it can beat Stonehaven… Home of big tides ( I’ve never seen a sail boat sitting on its keel…intentionally!)
Malt Whisky distillers… You’ve got a lot to live up to!!!
