More of Scotland

This is the roof line at the town hall in Inverurie.
In the UK and Europe there are clock towers everywhere....looking up is something I am always doing...the roof lines in towns are unreal.
This is Stonehaven harbour. The North Sea gets really wild and on a blustery day it makes you think of the poor fishermen out there.
This is a photo overlooking part of Stonehaven. I love all of the old buildings. I wonder what the builders of yesteryear would think when they see the buildings that aren't made to last now?????
This is a restaurant in Montrose. Talk about homesick. I found out that an American and a girl from Montrose met in Australia and got married and set up this restaurant....and the menu...American food???
I love this railway bridge. It is near Montrose. When you come around the bend in the road it is there...I knew this time..so I had the camera ready.

There were a couple of people out on the beach drawing pics...Pete snapped this of the flag.


Yesterday was our 19th anniversary....it was a mixed bag of emotions let me tell ya...so was it a great day...no. Had a great chat with Jennifer Gass...so the day ended up nice. Thanks Jen.

Okay...back to the photos...Last week Pete and I treked down to Montrose. Probably and hour and a half away. I am telling you...thrift shops...they were like boutiques..I think we saw 6 of the..and the village was only smallish.

We also went to Stonehaven for lunch. The Bervie Chipper has the BEST fish and chips!!! We drive an hour just to have them normally. Worth the drive too.

On Sunday we went to the car boot sale at Thainstone and I got some great bargains.

I hope you enjoy the pics of last week.

It must be wonderful to be able to tour around like this - I'm very jealous! I have ancestors from both Stonehaven and Montrose but it is years since I've been in that area. Now that I think about it, I don't remember ever going to Montrose!
