Scotland 5: Day 37
04.06.16 | Thurso Hostel | 16:15
This morning was a perfect morning! I wandered into town and found a “breakfast roll” for breakfast. Like a pig-in-a-blanket, but instead of just the sausage, there was sausage, egg, bacon and beans. I wonder when and why Scotland decided that beans is a breakfast food. I’m not mocking them, but beans are everywhere here- especially when it comes to breakfast choices. Don’t they know about gas?
I went for a long walk to the ocean. Oh, how I love the ocean! I wandered for about three hours, walking very slowly toward Scrabster along the beach while listening to podcasts and conference talks. This is such a beautiful place! I didn’t realize this before, but Thurso happens to be the northernmost city on the mainland of the United Kingdom. File that one away for later.
When I made it back to the hostel, it started raining and it’s pretty much been doing that all day long, or at least up to this point. I get it April showers bring May flowers. No prob. A nap was in order. I probably got about 20 minutes of sleep and have spent the rest of the afternoon indoors.
I just got back from an early dinner. I found a really great Chinese food place, and since I hadn’t had any lunch, I ordered way too much! You know the expression “Your eyes are bigger than your stomach”? Yeah- that. It was pretty great food, even though there was zero spice to it after ordering a dish that was supposed to be spicy. No worries, though.
