One slightly sunny Tuesday in June, we headed out for a walk to Portobello Beach in Edinburgh. It was about a 2-mile walk from our flat next to Holyrood Park.
Being from Maine, I’ve been in some cold water before. This water definitely ranked as some of the coldest. It didn’t help that the sun stayed behind the clouds, giving us no incentive to get anything but our toes wet.
It was a lovely day, though. We enjoyed strolling the beach, climbing a cement wall to the side of the beach, tea and scones at a little cafe nearby, and lovely stroll back through quiet neighborhoods.
