Firth of Forth South

27 Oct: We’re beside the firth again today, on an afternoon of bright sunshine, a stiff breeze and the threat of showers. The area around Gullane may be best known for its golf courses, but the beach is superb, a sweep of sand backed by dunes and invasive (but colourful) sea buckthorn bushes. At the west end of the bay are rocks, separated by sandy gaps, and more shells (mostly broken fragments) than we’ve seen anywhere recently. Looming clouds from the west caused us to curtail our explorations; a sharp shower followed our return to the car, free of all cobwebs… Must come here again one day.
