Aberdeen beach

I cycled to the beach today and It was nice to see vast empty scenes along the waterfront after the crowded images that emerged from Bournemouth last week. I would like to say it’s because Aberdonians are very sensible people and that is certainly true but I think the difference is really more to do with cold water temperatures here and a much smaller population. I’ve never liked huge crowds so I’m very happy to live here.


Yesterday I went to Marks & Spencer and I took a photograph of the cardboard cutout I had a conversation with last week so you can see how realistic it is. Fortunately I didn’t make a fool of myself this time and I even managed to wear my mask without any problems.

  1. Never been to Aberdeen. I’ve heard there’s a hill full of corn there from an Orcadian friend who used to holiday there occasionally.

    1. Hmm, I’m not familiar with the hill full of corn? Aberdeen is a nice place to live. We like it here.

      1. The friend would holiday in Cornhill.

  2. That cutout is so real 😂

    1. Glad I’m not the only one who thinks so!

  3. Looks beautiful and a really empty beach 😁

  4. The cardboard cut out is cool. Would make a change from Teddy bears in the windows we saw on our lockdown walks!

    1. They’ve since removed the cardboard cutout. I think they probably wanted to create more space because at a time of social distancing they need ever inch they can find.
