Charlotte and I went for a little drive today across the Forth road bridge on a little errand,
it was a beautiful sunny day, a little cold, but we wrapped up warm
Looking proud in a new red coat, the painting looks complete.
Every time I come to see it I cant help but marvel over this beautiful towering structure and feel too, the sadness for the many who lost their lives in its construction and all to make possible a way across the Forth on train to Fife and beyond
We walked right down to the waters edge where the life boat enters the water, Charlotte loved it,
she just looked around and up and across in quiet thought, even to a 2 year old this is impressive
Then she heard the rumbling . . . . .
a train on the bridge . . . she was so in awe
she wanted to get closer to the edge but I kept her way back, she wanted to see the three swans that were swimming around close to the side
We walked across to the 'Railbridge' bistro where we sat on one of their most comfy sofas by the wood burning stove. Charlotte was quite tired from her Friday morning dance class so it was a nice but not to long outing. She amused herself with a selection of toys from the basket while I enjoyed a nice cup of tea and wrote out my postcard purchased from the gift shop for my swap partner in Anne's postcard swap and the purpose of our little trip to
I cant show you the one that I made just yet as I will have to wait until it has arrived at its destination accross the pond :)
