Another Saturday and another children’s birthday party at Codona‘s by the beach in Aberdeen. Last Saturday we also went to a children’s birthday party at Codona’s and I found the bike ride there incredibly stressful. This Saturday I took a different route and it was just as hard. I even cycled the wrong way down a one-way street but there really was no other option. It was either that or remain on a very busy four-lane road and somehow turn right across all those lanes of traffic. I was just trying to keep us all alive.
I hate Codona’s; especially after a stressful bike ride when all I want to do is sit in a quiet, dark place and relax. Codona’s is crowds and noise. But kids love it.
The beach itself is quite nice. I’m not really a beach person but I like the smell of the sea and it is nice gazing out on an endless expanse of ocean. I took this photo of a dog carrying a paddle for their owner.

My beans have started flowering:
No idea what this is but it looks pretty:
