{photographs from the weekend : gullane & a day along the coast}

. . . this past weekend, left the city behind for a leisurely countryside drive, a stop in the most quaint café [for coffee and an exquisite slice of apricot tart], and a day in the picturesque town of gullane, about twenty miles outside of edinburgh, to spend the day on the east coast of scotland, amongst perfectly manicured golf courses and cosy inns, grassy dunes and miles upon miles of sandy beaches; under the ever-changing light -- from golden, to ethereal shades of dusky violet and pink the colour of daydreams -- it would be, one of the best days, ever, at least so far . . .

. . . and as with every beach anywhere in the world for as long as can remember, always a moment to search for a few rocks and seashells to bring home as a reminder of that day . . .

This almost reminds me of the Lewes Delaware coastline. You can take a look at some pictures on my blog.

OH I cycled there last year from Edinburgh and bought the Hazelnut bread which is delightful - they have a shop in Morningside too - there is always a queue.

That's absolutely beautiful. My husband and I were there last year and stayed at Greywalls! I'm pretty sure we did the same walk, but it was really cold and gray when we were there. I would love to go back. Great photos x

Such a beautiful place—I am in awe of the natural beauty—the beach, the hills, the sun… wow! So nice to see you in some of the captures, too—looking as lovely as ever :)

xxoo, Sarah
