I love beaches, but given the choice between the sunbaked Mediterranean or the slightly cold windy British coastline, I would opt for the latter (almost) every time.
It’s probably partly to do with the tendency to romaticise a place that you are far away from, but it’s also a lot to do with the colours of the English seaside and the very British freedom to walk dogs on the coast.
Will the beaches in Scotland be like this? I do hope so.
One thing is for sure, 2011 is shaping up to be an interesting year… Hope you can join us for the journey.
