Sunny Days...

Aberdeen usually gets about 3 days of 'summer'. By summer, I mean warmer than 12c & not snowing. Unfortunately for us, summer this year has happened in April which means we now face at least 6 months before the weather will turn bad enough & we get to experience the joy of being snowed in for 3 weeks. We may get another day or 2 in September or freakishly, November.

Since husband doesn't seem to have twigged to my hints of moving to San Diego yet, I have been forced to make the most of this unseasonably hot weather and we took a trip to 'Back o' Bennachie' - a lovely spot about 15 miles north of Aberdeen. Bennachie is a large hill (I'd say more of a mountain!), atop which there are remains of a iron-age hill fort. If you're feeling adventurous enough, it makes a lovely trek up & situated at the foot are a few lovely picnic spots (and more importantly, Pittodrie House Hotel, where we got married!). Here are just a few snaps from our afternoon...
