Beautiful little visitor to the garden today.
Beautiful walk along the beach this evening. Barely another soul in sight.
I look forward to swimming with the @lassieswhodook again when all of this is over. This was taken on Hogmanay 2019 as the last sun of the decade was setting - it was an absolute peach.
I have lots to be grateful for - having this on my doorstep is definitely up there.
Mindy was living her best life on her walk earlier. I feel especially lucky to have this in on our doorstep at the moment - everything almost feels normal on the beach (until you see someone you know and are super aware of keeping 2 metres apart and not to linger too long in case it's classed as a gathering).
Sunshine, moody skies and a wee scramble on the rocks for our walk today.
And a reality check - they're now playing the x-box.
Pre lockdown.

Really interesting interview and great piece by Rebecca McQuillan - more in stories.
First swim for this lovely lady and she nailed it! The buddy system today was a great idea, pairing up first time swimmers with those with a bit more experience.

What a privilege to work alongside @wildswimmingstories this morning. Over 300 women gathered on Portobello Beach for a sunrise swim for #internationalwomensday in aid of Women's Aid - a massive well done to all who organised and to those who swam - absolutely incredible stuff!
Swimrise, 5th March - there was frost on the sand and the water was toe numbingly cold but so beautifully clear and I'm now feeling ready for the day. Thank you my lovely friends @lassieswhodook xx
What a beautiful evening!
