On Friday we drove Lindsey’s Mum to Stirling for lunch with her relatives at the River House Restaurant.
The River House is a nice restaurant in a picturesque setting on the outskirts of Stirling.
Shaun appeared on Friday evening, back from Aberdeen for the weekend, and on Saturday the three of us played golf up the road at Portobello Golf Course. Shaun’s clubs were too small for him – at least, that was the reason he gave for taking so many freshies.
While we were waiting to tee off, a chap (I think he may be Czeslaw Kruk) came up to us, spoke for a while and then gave me a book: 155 years of Golf in Portobello, ISBN: 978-83-926305-0-0 That was very nice of him. I’ll read it with interest, as it also covers other bits of Portobello history, and there’s even an old photo of a tram going down Portobello High Street.
