Marischal College, Aberdeen

It’s a beautiful day in Aberdeen today. I had to run some errands in town this morning and I took these photos of the very gorgeous Marischal College. It’s the second largest granite building in the world, and is owned by the University of Aberdeen and leased to the city council.




Apparently much of the UK has been hit with some bad weather but not here. It has been fine today and yesterday with no rain and a gentle sea breeze. Ben has been in York where he says the weather has been wild.

I dropped into a Pret a Manger at one point to relax and discovered they’ve got a wonderful almond shake which is suitable for vegans. I tried it and it was delicious. The ingredients are water, banana puree, almonds, cashew butter, coconut nectar, tahini, date puree, and vanilla powder. The cafe was packed with people including one woman breastfeeding her baby. No-one batted an eyelid or seemed remotely concerned with what she was doing, which is just as it should be. My faith in humanity has been restored.
