Aberdeen is really very beautiful in the spring. There are many areas of the city liberally strewn with daffodils (and crocuses earlier on). A few evenings ago, we went for a walk by the River Dee:
It’s been very dry here, and the days have been sunny. But the past few mornings we’ve woken up to “haar” – sea mist. It comes in off the North Sea and cloaks the town until it’s burned off, about mid-day. So while much of the rest of Scotland was enjoying a beautiful sunny morning, the view down Union Street at 8:30 a.m. today was this:
I don’t really mind the haar – it has such a beautiful name, for one thing. It was Earth Day today and I thought of how much I love this planet and how lucky I am to live here. Happy Earth Day!
