Exploring North Berwick shore
Penumbra Peer Support colleagues at Saint Stephen’s Court and Firrhill services, along with partnered Volunteer Edinburgh staff, accompanied our supported people on a day trip to the historic, lush North Berwick shores this past month.
Fortunately, we were graced with a day of good weather as we took in the Aquatic Bird Sanctuary, exploring the awe-inspiring wonders of Scotland’s wild and coastal life, from the Bass Rock which hosts the world’s largest colony of Gannet, to the rare Razorbill with its indistinguishable white stripe. We then went for a scenic walk along the sandy beach!
We were graced with a day of good weather…with laughs and smiles!
A day at the beach wouldn’t be complete without some hearty fish and chips and the most delicious artisanal, high street coffee to grace East Lothian. A few of our supported people got suited and booted in the town’s vintage charity shops, while others explored the Mariner kiosks.
The bus ride home was filled with laughs and smiles as we played trivia games and musical challenges – it was an amazing day to be had by all!
Thank you to Raine from our Firhill and St Stephens service for sharing their fab day out!
