Edinburgh Pt.1: Portobello Beach


Part 2 in our Edinburgh series, Portobello Beach!


Located just a 20 minute cab ride from the city center, it was a perfect way to spend our first morning in Scotland. We visited in March, so the weather was still too chilly for us to go swimming. but that didn't stop us from walking right up to the water. We walked the beach front, picked up some shells and people watched all morning. Around lunch time, we wondered back into the town proper and wandered the main strip. We found a pub called The Beaten Dock on the way back that had some of the best fish n chips during our whole trip,! And later a coffee shop that unfortunately has closed since our visit.

When we first got home from our vacation, I felt terrible. I was in the height of some major depression and the guilt of not enjoying my trip had set in. But as my depression faded one of the things about my trip that stuck with me was how much we had enjoyed our day at the beach. It wasn't anything fancy. Just a relaxing ambiance that allowed me to put my mind at ease. To relax and lift myself up. Share some laughs with my husband and cut out the noise from my mind. If we return to Scotland (and I do hope so!) Portobello Beach is one of the places I hope we can visit again.
