Not craft....what I did today....

It felt like spring really was here. So...Pete said let's go to Cullen to play some golf.This is him...he is so cute...well I can say that...we have been married for 19 years in 15 days!!!
We drove through Banff and we stopped at Duff House for a picture. Isn't it beautiful!!!
We then drove onto Cullen. There is a patchwork shop there. I bought some fabric for a bag...and some fabric for Jordan. I also got a crochet hook to try making a floor mat. Then on to the curiosity shop and bought a cute little ink container...that will be a great little vase.
This is another view of the village. Notice the big viaduct bridges? I love them too! I love Cullen and the people are so nice there...it still has it's small town charm!!!
See I really do love the bridges!!!
This is looking down onto the harbour. Scotland is full of these little harbours. You should see it on a rough day...today it was perfectly still.
This is looking at the rooftops. I am sorry if I am boring you all...but I thought this would be a great picture.
These are the fishermen's cottages in Cullen.
This house is built into the bridge...there is another one on the other side of the road.
These are the houses in Portknockie near Cullen. The whole village has houses just like these!!! They are beautiful and the village is picture perfect.
This is on the way home near Rosehearty. Imagine living in that house....it is awesome.


Pete and I had the nicest day together. Albeit for the two crazy drivers that nearly got us killed.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my day through my camera.
