Laura’s birthday was this week, so today Felicity and I took her to Jannetta’s and then hung out at The Central. Jannetta’s is the gelato place in town. Ice cream, mmm… I had Ferrero Rocher and it was amazing. We were going to walk down to West Sands but it was cold so we went to the long pier instead.
That’s half-way down the pier, looking back into town. The castle ruins are on the right, the cathedral ruins and St Rule’s tower are in the center, and in between the two amongst the mass of buildings are Gannochy and the English buildings.
The view of the North Sea was incredible… and we even got to see dolphins! I tried to get a picture of them…
Laura showed us around Deans Court after dinner and then we went back to the pier for stargazing. The sky was partly cloudy, but because we’re just a small town next to the sea, and so far north, the stars are breathdaking. I can’t wait to go out to the pier on a clear night! Tonight we had an amazing view of a 3/4 harvest moon rising over the black sea, casting a glittering golden path across the waves to the horizon. I tried to take a picture, but just couldn’t do it justice. It’s times like these that I wish I had a better camera that can take nighttime pictures.
My day off and I only got to read two pages of The Sparrow. This makes me very sad indeed.
