Sunday Morning Walk

The sun came out and the wind dropped. Perfect for a walk around town.
Couples with young children were sitting on the promenade benches eating ice creams. A whole row of motorbikes lined up along the breakwater with their owners sitting outside the kiosk enjoying tea and bacon baps. Walkers, with and without dogs, strolling along the promenade, quayside and beach and even venturing up the hill to look down over the town.  

We walked along the promenade, over the bridge and around the outside of the castle then back alongside the marina.  Almost tempted to stop for a bacon bap but resisted at the last minute.  

On the horizon, that dark blue smudge is the Mull of Galloway

Along the causeway out to the castle and the breakwater

Around the back of the castle

My favourite spot - almost Mediterranean

Two beaches divided by the causeway

  1. It looks idyllic! Let's hope this nice weather lasts...

    1. It is certainly a beautiful spot when the weather is being kind :)

  2. Beautiful weather and sea air just soothes the soul! What a nice way to spend a Sunday morning.

    1. I don't know why but the sea just makes all the difference.

  3. That's a beautiful walk. You dont need to go to Greece, or Cuba, you've got it all right at home!
    I definitely would have gone for a bacon bap!!!

    1. It would be better if we had that weather for longer periods during the year. We wouldn't need to go off in search of warmth and sunshine so often!
