It was absolutely pouring down one Sunday not too long ago, when I decided to go in a little mood because I was sick to death of the rain, and just wanted to go outside and explore for a change.
Before you read any further, this post mainly came to be because of Pokemon… but that’s definitely not a bad thing!
Aberdeen beach is an absolute hot spot for Pokemon apparently, and loads of people can be found at the park at Fittie camped out playing the game until the early hours of the morning, but I didn’t believe it was actually a thing, so we went down for a wander to investigate.
There’s no pictures of said people playing Pokemon unfortunately, but we were treated to some lovely colours in the sky, so I snapped that while Emma tried to catch a Pidgey or something.
The light nights are no longer, we have officially hit October and the dark nights are rolling in, so trying to make the most of what free time I actually have during the week to get out and about, and that only seems to be on a Sunday, sadly.
Thankfully, there was no F1 this weekend (sorry Emma), and it was a pretty glorious day considering it’s October and Aberdeen, so we went out for a bit before I had to go to work.
When we were at New Slains Castle the other week, we were speaking to a guy and he made us aware of some places to check out further north of the castle, and since our car was parked in the opposite direction, we said we’d do this another day.
So, that was what today’s plan was!
A couple of weeks ago, we actually tried to walk to what we thought was New Slains Castle, but turns out we were actually quite far away from it, and probably would have fallen off a cliff before we got there.
So, it was a Monday holiday, and we decided that we would try again, but this time we would actually make it successfully to the castle, and not go on some wild detour… my bad.
With summer well and truly over, and darkness creeping in earlier and earlier every day, it doesn’t leave much time for exploring by the time work finishes, but last night we made it a little bit north to Collieston, a small former fishing village in between Newburgh and Cruden Bay.
