Hello Hello Hivians
Today we are going up to the city in Angus in Scotland 🏴
This was in February so was a wee bit chilly but mostly dry.
All aboard the train!
Where we live in Kirkcaldy is on the main train line from Edinburgh to Aberdeen so Edinburgh is only about half an hour away and to Dundee is about forty minutes or so.
In days gone by we would have driven but since we went green and got rid of the car during lockdown, we love doing our bit for the planet!
I hope you are doing something to save our planet?
These pictures today are all raw and unfiltered taken with my old smartphone camera.
So it is blurry that train, but not because the camera is crap, no it is because the train was not ours, and so was not stopping!
Next stop Ladybank
Do you see how different Scotland is? We have banks solely for ladies!
How fluffing cool is that.
Well not that cool, although it is a small town, it is of course for everyone.
Fun fact though, my mother used to live there a long time ago as my grandfather actually was a bank manager there!
But it is off to Dundee we go and yes it is dark now!
Crossing the Tay over the Tay bridge this is the view ...
One good thing is that the city centre is close to the train station which is close to the water!
All the lights on the trees, it actually looked quite pretty and it did not matter that it was drizzling, it was Scotland in February after all!
Okay first things first and food! This was close to the hotel and seemed a fine place!
Mexican Restaurant, well you can't go wrong with Mexican can you?
You fluffing can when it is full up on a weekday night!
Change of plan then...
Luckily we saw another restaurant close to our hotel...
The name was RAMA THAI
I really should make a foodie post about it so let's drop a couple of pics of the food!
It was a bit pricey but worth every penny! Truly delicious.
You can tell you are in a Thai restaurant by the decor
I did love this wee trike as you came into the restaurant.
Next morning it was time to see what we crossed the night before ...
There it is the Tay bridge crossing the Firth of Tay.
Infact if you want to know more and see some detailed pics such as this one
Then do go read my post Teetering on the edge of the Volcanic Sill on the Dundee Law in Scotland - What a view from earlier in the year.
Now that I think of it, I have not really posted about Dundee at all.
And there is so much to post, so I won't put too much more into this post except to say that there was this wonderful wool shop. Or yarn, do you say yarn @wongi ...
It was stuffed with all sorts of wool. I am sure you could create a masterpiece from this...
Not far from that wool shop is this tram.
It is not a cafe.
I often get accused of being Daddy Long Legs as I can walk fast when I want to without trying.
But I am not a patch on this guy ...
Desperate Dan he is of course, but do you know the name of the imp at the back @wongi?
I shall leave you with nature's beauty inner raw unfiltered format.
I have just seen that we have a snow forecast today!
Fluffing nonsense if you ask me, well what fitting way to end the walk with some snowdrops from Dundee Botanical Gardens.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your day!
