Footdee, The Hidden Gem In Aberdeen


THE DAY BEFORE LEAVING "GRANITE CITY, my friend took me to Footdee or Fittie.  So nice of her to take me, even my son had never been there before.  This place is actually very near to the beach, one of Aberdeen's hidden gems although it sits there in plain sight overlooking the sea.  My friend called it Fisherman Village, a small area filled with quaint cottages and brightly coloured sheds.  Thanks to my friend, I managed to stroll along with her and took these photographs before leaving Aberdeen....
Rows of cute little cottages.... from the 1800s...
Did I see lines of clothing out for drying? 
Reminds me of my own village houses in Malaysia....
Walking along...
 Cute little cottages....
Interested buyers around?
And the two ladies having "fun" at the Footdee and the Pier...
Thank you C for taking the trouble to show me around...
Really miss our outings, singings and eatings!! LOL...

Ladies' Day Outing To Harvesters And Woodbanks, Aberdeen

LADIES OUTING!!

Three of us ladies went to Harvesters for lunch for a two course special deal.  It cost around 9pounds and it is a good deal with unlimited salad servings.  We had a good time there chatting and eating of course... and in the evening, we came out again, this time to have a light meal at Woodbanks.  This is a very rare occasion it seems.... they came out to bid me Farewell!! Yes, I am going to leave Aberdeen very soon.... during these few months, our friendship have developed.... and I am sure I will miss them lots!!
Started with my bowl of DIY salad....
My two lady friends chose these as starters....
Mary's choice...
C's Gammon....
And mine... I really do not know what it is...
Beef stew or something....
And lastly and not least.... I chose this for my desserts fix!
In the evening, we ladies at Woodbanks....
Thank you ladies for taking your precious time off to have fun with me...
I really appreciate the time we had together....
I hope we can do this year after year!!

Sweet Temptations At Aberdeen Beach

ICE CREAM SCREAMS!!

Since the days are longer here in summer, we take full advantage of that.  Eventhough Aaron comes home after 6pm each evening, we still have time to take a long stroll from our place to the beach in broad daylight.  The walk to the beach takes around half hour and by the time we reach home, it is still very bright at around 8pm or after. 

So what lured me to the beach even though it takes one hour walk?  None other than my favourite desserts... Ice Cream!  Aaron tempted me with an invitation... "Wanna have ice cream at the beach?"  Jom, let's go!! Desserts before dinner, how about that?  LOL..
After a 15 minutes walk, we have to ascend a hill....
It overlooks some buildings... and....
... the beach of course.....
Just beautiful.... despite the cold...
Wow...I see a strong boy here... or am I the weak one?
Nice evenings during the summer....
... to have evening walks..... stay healthy!!
And we joined in the crowd on this day.....
Yay!! Got what we wanted... our purpose in walking....
He chose the soft ice cream whereas mine is the scoopy type!!
And after that, a long walk home again...
Calories justified... dinner next!!
