After a summer break the blog will be up and running again until next summer. I hope you like the new blog layout and will enjoy looking through the site content and the new images on some of the pages.
Is Fraserburgh Dead?
According to some quoted in our local paper the Press and Journal it is. Thats not how I see things. There have been things to do for people of all ages during the summer. Here are just a few of the images of the events and places to go
Sandhaven Meal Mill
Lifeboat Open Day
Vintage Car Rally (the first image is the stall of Paul Woodburn a member of Fraserburgh Photographic Society and his partner Lisa. Paul did a roaring trade selling his prints.)
The First Super Saturday. A market with something extra. The theme was Heritage and Fishing and it brought large crowds into the town centre, some stall holders had sold out by lunchtime.
Ever been to Troup Head? Its a spectacular sea bird colony with the only mainland nesting Gannets in Scotland. I went by boat as a guest of Stuart Fenty an FPS member but you can get to the top of the cliffs as well
The theme for the second Super Saturday was 'Sport'. There was lots for the kids to try out and lots of advice for adults. Local entertainment was provided and again stalls slod out quickly/
Locals and visitors alike enjoyed the sun, sand and surf at Fraserburgh beach.
Fraserburgh RBL Pipe Band put on a good show at the contest in Aden Country Park
Great fun at Willows Animal Sanctuary
Super Saturday number three and the theme is 'Luxury Food'. Cooking demonstrations, food sampling and food to buy, you couldn't ask for more. But again the early birds ensured that some stalls had sold out by lunch time.
There have been three big running events and numerous other sporting activities taking place all summer
And there were lots more events I didn't get to so I can't show any pictures.
Who said Fraserburgh was dead? Certainly not any of thousands of people who attended the summers activities.
Well what else have I been up to
A trip to the west coast:-
I took some photographs of a Viking wedding in the dunes at Rattray and a more conventional wedding at the Lighthouse museum.
A trip to Edinburgh calling at Scone Place on the way back
