A Day Out in Anstruther

What is there to do in the summer in Scotland? Head off to the seaside, of course!

I’ve been on holiday this week, so naturally I have been itching to get out and explore. Tuesday happened to be one of the hottest days of the year, but unfortunately my other half was working and our little seaside voyage couldn’t take place until the next day. Needless to say, come Wednesday the skies were grey, the wind was up and the temperature was back down to Baltic. Okay, that last part was maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but it certainly didn’t feel very summery when we reached Anstruther.

So this time we decided we would take things at a more leisurely pace. We started as we meant to go on with breakfast at The Breakfast Club at London Bridge. Going out for breakfast is something of a novelty for us. I think we’ve only ever done it once in the three years we’ve been dating. There was much excitement on my part about it and I wasn’t disappointed. The Breakfast Club was busy but we didn’t have to wait long for a nice little booth where we could sit and admire the kitsch decor. It is a mishmash of different things and it really appealed to our sense of humour. Continue reading “London Calling”
