It has just occurred to me that my last last two posts have been much more Scottishy than usual!
I hope I'm not boring you with all of this stuff, but I thought it would be nice to let you all see a bit more to my area.
And anyway, lots of you doggie breeds originated on this rainy little part of the UK, so I thought "woof, why not?"
Today, we're going into Old Aberdeen, the really old part of the city!
Are you excited?
|Woof woof! The Scottishy tour continues!|
|Kings College Chapel|
This is the Crown Tower at Kings College Chapel. King's College is about 518 years old and part of the University Campus.
Can you tell they don't trust me to sit on a wall by myself where there are people floating around? Woof!
Here's St Machar's Cathedral!
The building is more than 800 years old, but the site was used as a Celtic place of worship in about 580 AD. It was restored from a Norman style cathedral to a kirk in the 13th Century.
The ceiling is covered in noble looking coats of arms too, woof!
There are rumours that William Wallace's left arm is stuck inside one of the walls here, because parts of his body were sent around Scotland when he was killed! Woof!
|Woof! This is Seaton park! ("not another park, Pippa!")|
This garden here is full of bonnie flowers...
|Like these ones, planted in the shape of the Saltire flag!|
|Here we are on the River Don, and you'll never guess what I've just seen!!!|
|A Heron! Woof!|
|Do you see it?|
|We crossed the Brig o' Balgownie into this little part of the town.|
Isn't this wee housie pretty?
|Woof, I can't be trusted standing in the middle of roads|
without my slave either, but looked at the nice houses!
|We walked towards the Bridge of Don by the river.|
Can you see what's under the bridge?
|Woof, it's the beach!|
(How do we always end up here...)
There were lots and lots of dolphins right in front of us today, though!
They were jumping and splashing around in the water!
Eve couldn't manage to take a photo of them (she managed to take a photograph of the sky), so here's one taken by the University people at the beach last Tuesday.

|Woof, it is I, Pippa, with the Gordon Highlanders!|
To top it all off, we passed the statue of the Gordon Highlanders and remembered to take a photograph this time.
How truly Scottishy!
I hope you enjoyed my little adventure today!
Thank you for visiting again,
Bye for now,
Pippa :) wuf wuf
