Back to Aberdeen

I woke suddenly the next morning to lovely bright sunshine again. I looked at the clock and it was almost 7am! Late for me, but considering I hadn't gone to sleep until nearly midnight, not surprising!
I got ready and went down for breakfast. I had the hot breakfast again, but I skipped the square sausage. Unfortunately I didn't get a tattie scone for some reason, which explains it being missing from my picture. I really need to remember to bring my camera with me for my other breakfasts. LOL!
After breakfast, I finished the last of my packing, paid for my accomodations and said my goodbyes to Catriona. I rushed to find some stamps for the post cards I had written the previous evening, got those in the post box and I was off to the train station.
It wasn't until I was on the train that I realized that I'd never asked about the helicopter sounds I had heard the night before.
I had another relaxing train ride (the motion really makes me sleepy!), this time back to Aberdeen.
I arrived at the station to be greeted by my friend, her eldest son and her fiancé. We (minus her fiancé who had to work) took a wee bit longer of a route than expected to my accomodations, and I found out that my room was on the top floor/ several floors up and of course no elevator. I managed to get my huge suitcase upstairs (thank goodness it wasn't really full!), got changed and off we went!
We had lunch in a nice little bar called "Henry's." I enjoyed some fish and chips (yes, it seems like I'll be trying it all over the place!), then we walked around a bit before heading off to pick up my friend's youngest. Once we had him, we stopped at a shop for a cake, then made our way back into town to see a movie. Unfortunately the times didn't work out, so she and I agreed to see it tomorrow instead. She and the boys headed home and I walked back toward the Pizza Hut for some dinner. I enjoyed a nice goat cheese and veggie pizza while my feet recouped from all the walking I'd done.
I then deeked into Waterstones to look through books before heading to the bus that would take me back towards the B&B to relax for the evening.
