Where I stayed
Andrea and David Davidson-Doyle
We went out to dinner with Andrea and David at a local pub on Sat night and I had really great meal. Wild Sea Bass with Samphire. I only knew what Samphire was because I watched this interesting show on SBS about a man travelling around England in a Combie van tasting and cooking local produce. Samphire grows on the sea marshes and spends a lot of time under water
Despite lots of rain there was a respite on Sunday and the sun came out for a while and we even managed to have lunch outside .. with sun too. Andrea (with a little help from David ) has a beautiful garden which they are rightly very proud of. All of the rain recently has given it a bit of a beating but it still looks wonderful. I so enjoyed going around with Andrea and investigating all her plants. You will see lots of their garden :-)
It appears we were lucky to get out of Cornwall and Wales when we did as they have had dreadful floods over the weekend. It may be mid June and summer but it is very cold over here. Very cold - I repeated this just in case you weren't quite sure I was serious lol.
I am writing this from Linlithgow, not far from Edinburgh. Andrea and David don't have Internet access and I had strong withdrawal symptons while I was disconnected. It is good to be back on line.
