Portobello Beach


A view along Portobello Beach on 1st May, 2011.


Edinburgh has a beach! Well, Portobello does. I walked down there as part of my lard-busting regime on 1st May, 2011, and I'd forgotten how massive it is. It was a lovely sunny day, but those sunbathers in t-shirts and bikinis must have been hardy souls because the wind was blasting straight in from the Baltic!
