Seaside Fish and chips

A weekend trip to the sea side and although it was a bit windy we sat in the sunshine and enjoyed some fish and chips looking out to Bass Rock.

Being Coeliac I cannot usually have a fish in batter as not all chippys serve a gluten free option. So it was a welcome surprise to see that the Rocketeer Restaurant in North Berwick did and I highly recommend their light and crispy batter.

The Sketcher family were in East Lothian for the day and decided to visit North Berwick for a walk along the beach and some lunch. How nice it is again to be able to travel further and eat out. Simple things that were once taken for granted, before the pandemic and lock down of 2020.

I look forward to heading out again along the coast and finding more relish foods along the way!

Fly along to North Berwick for Puffin Fest

PuffinFest_2014This week the sketcher family and I had a fantastic time at Puffin Fest at the Scottish  Seabird Centre in North Berwick.

Until the 26th May if you visit the Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick you can celebrate in all things puffin. Promising fun, games, activities and events for the whole family the Sketcher family headed along the East coast full off excitement.

 

North Berwick beach is a favourite short trip of ours already, the beautiful beach, interesting wee shops and coffee houses to explore and  only 25 miles out of the city. Add to all that the cuteness of wee puffins and we were sold!

 

The Puffin Fest runs until 26th May so head there quickly to take part in all the puffin activities, we had lessons on how to draw a puffin, watched  birds on Bass Rock on huge screens and even took a boat out to Craigleith Island to see the wee darlings up close.

 

The twins loved it, almost as much as the ice cream on the beach afterwards! To find out more about the Puffin Fest activities and the seabird centre click on the link below.
