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
