Such a wonderful sunny Spring day, I took a walk down to Portobello Beach.
Portobello Beach is towards the NE of the city and I have vivid memories of going there as a child, particularly to Portobello Open Air Pool which was a magnificent art-deco building. A salt water swimming pool, complete with diving boards, a raft and a wave machine. It was always bitterly cold but such great fun. Sadly now demolished and replaced with housing.
Portobello was once a popular destination with the folks of both Edinburgh and Glasgow, and after years of decline is now making a revival.
A walk through Bruntsfield, The Meadows, Holyrood Park, Figgate Park and on to Portobello Promenade and Beach.
