It was hard to get up this morning as I am so tired, even if it was a lovely sunny morning. I watched and listened to Eider ducks (wonderful "Ooooooaaaaooooh" call which makes them sound as though they are admiring you!) as I went along the shore of the River Ythan where there was also a large colony of seals - perhaps 200 in total. Spent most of the day walking along the beach. The weather closed in but not too much rain. Followed the shore road into Aberdeen where I found a Hilton hotel - 'Double Tree' - prepared to give me a great deal on a room as part of their contribution to my walk.
