The Dawn Patroller, recently, won a wee photographic competition.
For some time, on Facebook, there has been a page for Fraserburgh Photos through the Years. Which is really very interesting. Did you know that there were more bombs dropped on Fraserburgh than most places? As this was the last bit before the Germans returned home so they jettisoned what they had left.
But new photographs kept being put up.
On the original page there were lots of comments about, "Ah - what the beach was like.....what the town was like.. " and so on, and as more recent photos crept in they DID NOT LIKE IT.
So alongside that page we now have New Fraserburgh Photos. Which to be honest show just as much beauty, activity, etcetera as the old. (Without reference to the war.)
Each month there is a heading, last month was Harbour and Beach. The DP won the months competition with the above. Which went somewhere to silencing the "We wont see the beach like that again." (in the 50s.) Well, no, different clothing but still plenty people. Although I am told the vast majority of people using the beach are not from Fraserburgh. But TOURISTS. Which for some is a surprise. Tourists? Why would they come here? How long have you got for me to tell you why?
The last weekend saw the Scottish Windfest Tour. Kite Surfers Gathered, had competitions, (apart from there being no wind at all on day one!)
Fantastic fun. On Fraserburgh Beach 2014.
