Portobello reminds me of going to Saltcoats with my Grandparents when I was wee. It was an epic, stressful passage from East Kilbride.
Then….. Sea. Sand. Chips. Sun. And the shows.
By all accounts Portobello’s changed a lot over the years. Until the 70’s there was a heated outdoor pool. Less appealing is the thought that just over a century ago there was a human zoo here, featuring 70 Somalians, shipped in for paying visitors’ amusement.
I love noseying at life and homes, grabbing a take away coffee and beach wandering.
