Swans and Castles and Big Guns





The weather this weekend has been pretty amazing for Scotland in May. Absolutely glorious.
On Saturday I headed down to Broughty Ferry. Always a nice destination on a sunny day...



One for the boys...... ye cannae whack a big gun.




Can't make up my mind whether the Saltire (Scottish Flag) was flying at half mast or not.....

Mebbe some toff tosser was just seriously ill......




The swans were out in force......This one was giving me the evil eye I think.




....Ah the crystal clear waters of the Silvery Tay..... click this to get a better view all the way up to the Tay Road Bridge.



The queue at Vissochi's was too long for ice cream, so I settled for Gregg's sausage rolls and a freezing cold bottle of Lucozade and wandered back to the stony beach and the swans.....

  1. Oh it does look like it was a beautiful day. I love the picture of the swan. And, I think the saltire is not a half mast...at least it doesn't look it to me.

  10. It's probably a sad reflection of me, but when I saw the first photo, I thought of the Teletubbies' Superdome... but pimped-up a bit.

    :D
