Work has started at Cairnbulg Harbour. It is only a small harbour, with of course much history. But via a grant is being dredged and improved. This shows the machines depositing the dredgings below the high water mark. No I dont know what that achieves, presumably a deeper harbour?
The Harbour as is.
Anyone else get spooked by Google? Looking for images and info I come across eldest daughter and grandson at Cairnbulg Harbour.
The Dawn Patroller gets out whenever he can. Why there were this many seagulls wheeling about we dont know, no ploughing which usually brings them, but a pleasant sight.
The sunset going down behind Mormond Hill. I have been able to view different sides of this from both our houses here in the North East of Scotland.
Mormond Hill (Scottish Gaelic A' Mhormhonadh, meaning the great hill or moor) is a large hill in Aberdeenshire, Scotland not far from Fraserburgh. The villages of Strichen and New Leeds can be found at its foot hills.
It also has a smattering of disused satellite dishes and masts on top, remnants from Cold War NATO communications and British Telecom having a presence on the site. Wikepedia.
Yesterday the DP risked life and limb being mowed down by Half Marathon Runners from the Broch. We were the half way mark.
Getting Ready -
for the OFF!
Some of the runners were totally mad, well I think anyone who runs is totally mad.
And some made me feel ashamed.
I remained down the shed surrounded by wet hens.
