“A Magic trip” to the Beach – Cruden Bay and Slains Castle

Over the span of this Blog, I have tried several ways of getting photos displayed on here. The easist and most obvious is of course to use Flickr but I am too mean to pay the annual cost once you get over their free limit.

So then I moved to 23HQ and they do allow a slideshow export to WordPress but it’s displayed using a Flash wrapper so I ended up doing a lot of hand crafting of pages… Very time consuming.

So this is my third attempt at getting photo’s up… The photos themselves are being stored on Picasaweb (or Google+, take your pick) and then I used VodPod and its wordpress slideshow creator to display the result…

Anyone got a better suggestion for using with wordpress.com?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Last July I went out for an 8 mile run to Mintlaw from home via Aden Park. Here’s some of the shots I took along the way. (Good excuse for a breather eh?)

We got the opportunity and the weather to take Magic puppy to the beach.

We couldn’t let such a nice day go to waste. My Father in Law took us in his Caravanette to the beach at Blackdog.
