365 Photo Project – Week 25

We’re on the move and won’t be sitting still in any one place for longer than a few days until next week. Just the way we like it. We had a week to be “home” in Newcastle, where we stayed up way too late every night because it just doesn’t feel like bed time while […]

Setting Foot on the Isle of May

Half way around the Isle of May we pulled into the little harbor on the North Sea side of the island.   Brian and Tam had held back as long as they could, and finally had their fun by jumping in the water. In February. In the North Sea.   I, however, am not a […]

How to Put On a Dry Suit – Beginner’s Edition

Have I mentioned that Brian likes to surprise me? Every once in a while he’ll take one of my offhand comments and run with it. In this case he latched on to “I’d like to see puffins in the wild”. We were already planning to head up to Scotland for the weekend to celebrate a […]

A Morbid Mystery at Deep Sea World

Dunfermline has turned out to be the perfect jumping off point to start getting to know Scotland. We’re close enough to Edinburgh to pop in to the city whenever we want to, and far enough to avoid the bustle and traffic. There are quite a few things to see within a twenty minute drive from  […]

House Sitting in Dunfermline – And Loving It

We’re settling in to our house sitting job, learning the routine and getting more comfortable with the animals. The cats are easy, they sleep most of the day, occasionally want to go outside, and they come running when you open a cat food package. One of them, Cara, is a friendly and feisty thing. She […]

Scotland – Turning 40 in Anstruther

Brian is a Fifer, born and raised not very far from Anstruther. He grew up knowing the best fish supper was just up the road in this little shop called the Waterfront Chip Shop. Do you see it there? Just to the left of the Waterfront restaurant. Brian told me stories of his youth when […]
