Had a fantastic day out today on the beaches of North Berwick. I’ve only been once before and it was a grey and miserable day, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover what a fantastic seaside town it is in the sunshine.
We walked along the beach, collected shells and played in rockpools.
It’s such a beautiful place.
We had lunch at The Grange…
… then followed it up with ice cream!
Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day out!
Yesterday we went to Deep Sea World in North Queensferry.
It’s not a huge place and is quite pricey but we’ve always found it great when the kids are very small (like Ben is now) because they find the fishes so interesting and can get so close to them.
Ben was very excited and kept showing us that the tanks were full of fish.
They also have a small pool with seals. This one was enjoying the warm weather…
… as did we!
I’m not sure what Ben’s very first word was (though ‘mama’ is in with a good shout), but here are his first words. He’s built up a good little vocabulary.
‘Dada’ (only recently)
‘Tada’ (Czech for ‘here’)
‘Jeste’ (Czech for ‘more’)
‘Ne!’ (Czech for ‘no’)
‘There’ (when he brings something to show you).
A couple of weekends ago, we took the kids to Edinburgh’s Camera Obscura. It’s a brilliant attraction in the centre of Edinburgh, full of interactive optical illusions.
One of those rare places that can genuinely claim to appeal to all ages. Highly recommended.
