Saturday on the coast...Hello sunshine!!!
Been a whole week of dull overcast weather, misty, dew coated grass and no drying, typical kind of East coast springtime weather we often get.
A forecasted high pressure was due to come in for Saturday, but it was still a grey sky as i met Craig and Donald at Gullane for a wee cycle on the coast.
We rode east to North Berwick after dropping down to the coast on the Bake bean trail.
Again i have made short films sround 3 minutes long...
This weeks films are from the album `Resort` by Vancouver band Phontaine
Song is `Forever`...

Rolling into North Berwick and Donald headed off to the harbour as he was sailing in the afternoon,
After some food at Craigs cafe we walked outside into blue skies!, the cloud had dissapeared and it was a stunning day!
Thought i better do some more filming and make the most of the amazing light on the wet sand and calm sea,

We sat in the sun at Marine Villa and old school friend Dougie rolled up on his Charge Cooker Fatbike, Grabbing a spare hour between family life he headed off after a brief chat, what better way to spend a free hour than on a fatbike, :)
More film riding around Weaklaw rocks,

Across the sand at Freshwaterhaven and we managed to get a free run with no stops for people along the ace sandy singletrack to the Black rocks, then we met Ali riding east to North Berwick on his Purple Pugsley, we grabbed an ice cream at the car park and soaked up the sunshine views...
