Monday 6th June, Dunbar and Coldingham Bay

For once the weather was better than forecast, the morning was bright and this was the view across from our caravan site
Dunbar has a pleasant working harbour, and as usual no parking charges! There were a couple of inshore fishing boats unloading, and in the background you can see the remains of what was once a mighty castle.

Now the home of Kittiwakes, and these characters armed with very expensive long lenses.
This is the object of their interest, nesting Kittiwakes on the Castle ruins.
Incredible though it may seem my little FZ100 easily exceeded the range of those very expensive lenses, here is my shot of one of the nesting birds
Walking back along the quayside I couldn't help noticing the amazing range of places that these fishing boats visit as they follow the shoals, just look at the range of places on these fish boxes!
On then to Coldingham Bay which is literally next door to St Abbs, it has a very nice beach and a pool of fresh water, that was very popular with our kids when they were young.
There is a Cafe and a rather fine beach, with strange pink coloured rocks.
But the footpath up to the car park seems to have got steeper as the years have gone by!
