There was no club summer outing last year for obvious reasons. This year we didn’t know what restrictions would still be in place so the club opted for just an informal gathering at a place of interest with no enclosed gatherings or evening meal arranged. Members were free to mingle as much or as little as they felt comfortable.
With the above in mind, we opted for North Berwick in East Lothian, a little over an hour’s drive from Galashiels.
We gathered outside the Seabird Centre in the morning just to say hello then all made our own way around the area cameras in hand.
Some booked a boat trip around the Bass rock whilst others wandered along the beach front or in town. The weather wasn’t particularly nice to start with and a few showers appeared throughout the morning. It did however brighten a little later in the afternoon. I think most were glad they brought a coat or jacket, as it got decidedly chilly when stood still for a while.
Undeterred though, some fully embraced the holiday spirit although none were tempted to go for a dip in the sea.
The local seafood was very popular.
Judging by the Facebook page submissions our photographers managed to grab a good few decent shots, no doubt many of which we’ll be seeing later on at club meetings.
Overall, we had thirteen come along which isn’t bad given the situation. Here are a few of our images.
