Lovely to see you finding so much joy in an area which I also love and treasure. My "Bonus Mum", Muriel, walked across the beach most days when she lived in Cullen, and this was one of her places of worship and meditation.
Did you notice the inscription below the statue of the fisherman at Findochty harbour (made, if I remember correctly, by one of my Dad's pupils, but before my time) with the verse "They see the works of the Lord and his wonders in the deep"?

Thanks for this Dave. I can see why Muriel would find this shoreline a "thin place" (George MacLeod of Iona). Yes I saw the verse, and it comes from a favourite Psalm, one I read when life comes clattering in on top of us and we are looking for a foothold, a promise, a safe harbour. Hope you're doing ok, and life is good just now.
