I spent many happy days in Stonehaven in my childhood and my youth, as its the hometown of our family friends Sandra and Frank and their children and grandchildren. I was keen to take Matthew to Stonehaven to show him the town and was delighted when Sandra and Frank said they were free for dinner, and even happier when my mum and dad said they'd drive the hundred miles down from Forres to join us for supper. Living at the end of the country, we don't get together too often, so dinner with some awesome people sounded ideal.

|Despite the chilly weather, we indulged in ice creams from the wonder that is Aunt Betty's. With 'toppings' naturally!|

|Loved this subtle, light blonde beer|
|Fish and chips by the sea is always a good idea!|
