I did it! I posted a food photo on my blog since who-knows-when!? No, I still haven’t picked up a camera since June and still relying on my iPhone cam but better than nothing I think. I took this picture to blog about my obsession with fresh corn lately (as opposed to canned or frozen […]

See that large volcanic rock in the photo above? When we visit Scotch’s family in Dunbar we can see that rock, known as Bass Rock, from almost everywhere along the coastline. On this recent visit to Dunbar, Scotch and family thought it would be a good idea for Wee Scotch and I to take a […]

One of the most scenic and beautiful places I’ve ever run in is Dunbar, Scotland. At 50ºF (10ºC), it could possibly be the coldest place as well. And this is summer – granted, early summer. It’s 9am and I’m out on my run. The sun has just broken through the clouds to bathe the East […]
