More shimmer than glow but I suppose the view of the sea from the Beach Esplanade as I headed out to last Saturday’s Aberdeen Park Run counts. I am only five official runs in but it is very quickly becoming a key part of my Saturday mornings, when life allows me spend the weekend in the ‘Deen.
Next step the Baker Hughes 10k next year.
For the WordPress Photo Challenge Prompt: Glow
Lone walker in the distance, grey granite walls, a bit of wetness and a path I take on my way home everyday from work. Pedestrian, both in the sense of someone walking rather than driving or taking the bus and also the sense of something mundane, repeated and without excitement; Quotidian for what its worth.
For the WordPress photo challenge, Pedestrian.
Somewhat fortuitously – long story for another day – I have somehow found myself working bang in the city centre for most of the last six years, the chief joys of which include being able to stroll leisurely into work in twenty minutes tops, and this – views of the harbour through the window of the canteen on the third floor.
Between the middle ship and the green ship, if you look hard enough you’ll see the remains of seagull poop. For now at least, these two are constants, ships and seagulls.
For the prompt, Windows.
One Friday this summer, S and I decided dolphin watching would be a good thing to do, which was how we hopped into the car, drove to the Aberdeen harbour and paid for a harbour cruise. The dolphins had other plans – 92% chance or not – and we ended up not seeing any. We did get the joy of about an hour of cruising round the harbour along with other equally disappointed would be dolphin watchers. Good bonding though, I guess?
For the prompt, Layered.
The downside – or some might say it is an upside – of having family on three continents is I spend quite a bit of time in airports waiting; to board, for baggage, to be picked up or sometimes to catch my breath after what can sometimes be a battle to get through immigration and customs, no thanks to the power of my passport.
The interplay between costs, stopover lengths and distance sometimes mean that only the very earliest of flights are workable for me, which is how I ended up at the airport at about 6.00am on this day. All in a day’s worth of waiting, I guess.
For the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, Waiting.
Though Mo and P both pilfered stuff,
their ends could not be more diverse.
For his hard work he earned six strokes,
For hers, apologies.

For feisty bouts betwixt the sheets,
Chima repays disdain.
His heart, once broken by a buxom belle
Still aches in pain for her delights.
For Chima the six who wants a ten.
Bob the Brave would fight
Brexit’s worthy cause. His Achilles
Heel? An expired MOT
For Robert, who wants to take Spain on, on behalf of Gibraltar
St Albans Cathedral, one December day. For the prompt, Wish:
For fulfilled desires,
For the Loved Ones to return
Again in peace. Wish.
