In the Summertime When the Weather is Fine…

I think we can all agree that here in Edinburgh the weather is anything but ‘fine’. At the time of writing it is raining, it is cold, it is windy and it is generally miserable. We’ve just come through a cold snap – we had a lot of heavy frost last weekend, which made for lots of fun photos – with plenty of ice (I ended up having an unexpected sit down on the way to work on Friday) and bone chilling winds. Don’t get me wrong, I really like winter and I have no objection to the cold – my favourite weather-related maxim is There’s no such thing as bad weather; just inappropriate clothing – but at this time of year our minds often wander to the warmer months where all you need are shorts, t-shirts, flip flops and sunglasses. I was thinking about this in work on Friday and it made me look up an old photo album from August 2010.Sun, weather, St Andrews, East Sands, Beach, Paddling

Sun, weather, St Andrews, East Sands, Beach, PaddlingThere is nothing better than strolling along the edge of the water on a nice sandy beach. The waves gently lapping over your feet and the biggest care in your world is where you’re going to find an ice cream or a cooling jug of Pimm’s. I was on East Sand, St Andrews on this particular occasion and so these ponderous questions weren’t even a problem (Janetta’s, the ice cream shop; and I own ‘the Pimm’s jug’ for a reason) so I was just left to watch the sun glimmering off the gently rippling water. Bliss. And certainly much better than the driving rain…
