Monster Fish and Good Nosh

When on holiday we do like a daily walk so whilst in Edinburgh we decided to walk along Marine Drive; a purpose built shoreline walk suitable for pedestrians, cyclists and dog walkers alike.  It's great! It's a flat easy walk during daylight hours although it could be problematic at night time as we could see no lamps anywhere.  It runs pretty parallel with the curve of the road albeit some distance away separated by trees and a big grassy area and on the other side is the sea, so fresh sea air comes free of charge :)  En route we encountered this marine monster. Isn't he great? He was funded by the local Cramond community and 'Friends of the Fish' in 2009.  I suppose local livelihoods depend on fish so the tribute is very fitting....


                                     


After 25 minutes we rounded a bend and saw this little estuary where the river meets the North sea. It was so pretty and obviously well used....


This sign explained exactly where we were......

A little further exploration and we discovered this..... as the Scottish say "pear...fect!"


It was a super little pub and the food was excellent. As I go for vegetarian food there is usually so little choice, maybe pasta or veg lasagne.  Here I chose sweet potato, chickpea and spinach curry with plain boiled rice (which looks a little off colour in the photo, it wasn't, it was pure white)  It cost £8.50 but was worth every penny.  OH chose scampi & chips which he really enjoyed.  It was well worth the 25-30 minute brisk walk to get there and I felt quite virtuous on the walk back.  Good food and then walking off some of the calories!


Does anyone else know Cramond?  Have you been to the Cramond Inn? Incidentally it's also dog friendly....

Now here's a photo you won't see very often....


.....OH on his knees with a dustpan & brush.  I haven't seen that in over 42 years of marriage! He was sprucing up the mat.  It just shows how he loves his caravan...lol....

It's rather hot here today and I want to make an apple crumble for tea so I must dash and make it before the sun moves round and I roast myself in the kitchen.  Half the ironing has been done, beds stripped, washed and dried so all that's left to do is the crumble (cold chicken and chips for tea, nice and easy).

Have a lovely day, whatever you are doing x
