Remember last year when we went strawberry picking? (If not, find it here) Warning – large photo dump below.
Holiday destination of choice was Gullane this year (anyone local who could tell me whether it’s Gull-ahn or Gull-ayne? We heard both during the week). Located on the Firth of Forth, it’s a beautiful wee town with amazing ice cream. We rented a house through North Berwick Holiday Homes. Well, to be accurate, my parents did, as we are broke due to new baby and maternity pay. The house was basic, but perfectly fine for what we needed. Ten minute walk to the beach:
There was a trip to visit friends, but with two sleeping children in the car I didn’t want to take them out of the car and wake them (NEVER wake a sleeping baby!). So Mr Dr L turned butler and brought us tea in the carpark.
That was exciting when TWM woke up – but not as exciting as accessing Mrs Dr L’s sweetpeas by climbing out the window!
On Friday we reprised last year’s strawberry picking trip. This time the venue was Belhaven Fruit Farm, about 3 miles south-west of Dunbar. The farm has several poly-tunnels for PYO fruit, a play-park, and a cafe with all attendant facilities.
The cafe had a good range of snacks and meals and was very reasonably priced. Mum and Dad sampled the local speciality:
The play-park is well-designed and with tables and chairs arranged around one end TWM could come and go while we rested.
Meanwhile I purchased another local speciality for later consumption, having tried a taster from the cafe counter –
Gold stars to the staff who were friendly and helpful to a man (and woman).
Teeny spent a lot of time like this –
but occasionally was awake. Isn’t she getting big?
