The River Dee

I don’t really like shopping, especially supermarket shopping. One of the great things about the UK is you can get everything online and it’s usually delivered super fast. We ordered our mattress and bed frame online for instance. The downside of this is that the stuff comes in cardboard packaging and you then have to get rid of it. So I decided to load up Busby and take everything to a recycling station.

I’ve discovered there’s an off-road path along the River Dee and it was just beautiful. I cycled along it today and it looks more like the middle of the countryside rather than central Aberdeen.

      1. 3 days if I remember right, camped right on the outskirts of the city on the 3rd night. Lovely trip, though the fences across the river near the royal residence were a bit off putting, luckily the river was a bit low.

  1. So scenic. I will have to search if we have any river close to Auckland. I just got thinking, chilling on a river bank sounds much more exciting to me than a beach. I hate the sand and the salt water.

    1. I hate the sand too! I quite like salt water though but I’d prefer a swimming pool to the beach any day. I probably also prefer rivers as well and the grassy banks of this one did look very inviting.

      1. My disliking towards salt water comes from my experience at Indian beaches where there won’t be showers close by. So I had to wait until I get home in the hot weather to take a shower. Meanwhile it irks when the skin soaked in salt water is exposed to sun 🙂

        Luckily (just in case I had to dip in the beach in the future) most of the Auckland beaches have showers close by. But somehow those earlier life experiences sticks on.

  2. Have Busby, can do anything by the looks of it. How independent are you with your trusty bike pal. 🙂 Just love the photo of the River Dee. It looks like a beautiful landscape painting.

  3. Better turn up your light settings on your camera for pics around Aberdeen. You must still be on Auckland settings!!! Otherwise beautiful.
