Firstly, for those that do read or follow, I must apologise, what with a new job and some priority decorating needing doing, the blog had to take a back seat.
So lets go back to April and after our last night in the wilds of the Cairngorms, it was time to go and see the family in Aberdeen and first on the list was Granny & Granda (G&G) and some home cooking and giving the rock’n’roll bed a rest (B&B).
We’d promised them a trip out in the van, so making sure there was cake in the cupboard, we set off for the old fishing village of Whitehills, on the Moray Firth, where G&G grew up.
Only 1 or 2 boats still fish there, although the harbour has been redeveloped as a marina.
The Galley restaurant right on the harbour can be highly recommended and really is advisable to book.
Earl also made an appearance on the Aberdeen seafront, before starting the long drive south, with an overnight pitstop in Leeds before the final run back to Hampshire and the dreaded return to work.
