Edinburgh Waverley Station

Having Edinburgh’s huge Waverley Railway Station practically on my doorstep here is a real joy. On a whim I hopped onto a quiet ScotRail train this afternoon to a decidedly breezy, but no less beautiful, North Berwick. Half an hour’s run, after which it’s like stepping into an entirely different world. A little later in the year I’ll bring books, beach blanket and picnic lunches here …

  1. Looks like a fabulous outing, Simon. I can practically feel that salt air on my skin and just love ‘The Watcher.’ Must be such fun to gambol about exploring new places. Wonderful to be able to tag along vicariously…💕 xx

    1. There’s such life in ‘The Watcher,’ Lori. I’m often astonished by public art pieces like this one. The last time I was quite so ‘wowed’ by such a work was in Castries, St Lucia, in 2020 – about which joyful memory I can feel a post coming on … 😊 xx

    1. It’s wonderful to have you along, dear Mimi. Do you have conversations with friends who are with you ‘in spirit’ as I do? I enjoy thinking of your link with Edinburgh, via your son’s having studied with UofEd, every time I pass McEwan Hall 🤗xx
