Macduff Marine Aquarium we have visited many times. It is open all year round so somewhere to visit with grand children - or without.
Crovie, pronounced Crivie , has no road to the cottages so everyone has a wheelbarrow. This is used to transport shopping from the car parked at the bottom of the road to the village. This transport mode was not mentioned at all !
Gardenstown is another village further up the coast from us. Bryan Angus, fellow artist, lives there . He and his partner run the Creative Retreat and have courses in Art.
It was a great programme with lots of other interesting stuff. We recorded it but those of you who know how to use catch up things - do it.
Our cat, Cait Sith, really enjoyed it. Here he is with the Dawn Patroller. Then he had to get closer.
Cait Sith is possibly a Kellas cat.
His double (stuffed and in a glass case) we saw at Aberdeen University Zoology department. Very large black cat Sith was a few centimetres shorter from nose to tail. The Kellas cat is thought to be a cross from a Scottish wildcat which is currently subject of a lot of hoo ha of protection, and a feral cat. Feral cats and any loose domestic ones are being neutered.....
Today I walked my .59 of a mile before lunch instead of after. Daylight is very short now and I really wanted to paint. Never seen so many Oyster Catchers having fun as the tide came in.
My granddaughter wants a painting of a cheetah. Sadly not found in Aberdeenshire, except on my drawing board.
