I hope you have had a good week...
This week saw the French Open Tennis Championships end with another victory by Nadal and the 2018 World Cup of Football begin. There was also carnage at the US Open Golf Championships with high scores being returned due to the difficulty of the course.
In the news, the Trump-Kim summit took place in Singapore, Spain accepted the 600 ship-based migrants refused by Italy and Malta, and closer to home, fire gutted the Glasgow School of Art.
Still in Old Deer, here is the Public Hall
The influence of the clergy in the area can be noted
During this trip I had based myself in Cruden Bay to take advantage of the opportunity to fish from the harbour wall
The weather was good
Blue skies but a cold wind
I've jumped in the van again and as you can see from the signpost, I am heading to Maud
I had never been to Maud before (no reason to go there) but I was intrigued that it had a railway museum...
Here is the museum
Set in leafy surroundings
The railway museum is based in the former Maud Railway Station building
This is the nearby Station Hotel
The Sunday Snaps with pictures of Scotland can be found here https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-44409759
Have a great week. I am going to try to head off in the van for more fishing!
I didn't realise! - more from Maud...
