We travelled to Edinburgh for a visit to John and Sandria. The journey up was tough going with gale force winds but we made it despite a lorry blown over at Soutra and a few trees falling over part of the road. Ken joined John and myself for the last section of the John Muir Trail into Dunbar a walk of about 4.5 miles. Luckily we had the gale force wind behind us and it really helped us along.
The winter wheat is coming along nicely.
In a field by the side of the path was a lot of Swans.
There are still a lot of wartime defence barriers by the side of the shore.
It was in incoming tide and very choppy.
Ken and John struggling in the wind.
Crossing one of the several bridges.
This field is on the farm where I came to Dunbar in 1968 for the Boys Brigade Camp at a place called called Hedderwick Hill Farm.
On the beach and heading for the bridge to nowhere.
The Bridge to nowhere over the River Tyne at Dunbar. We did the walk in no time at all thanks to the gale force wind in our backs and it was a splendid walk that brought back memories of my 4 annual camps with the BB in Dunbar.
