VIDEO | A trip to South Queensferry
As I mentioned in this post, last week Terry and I took a drive out to the little town of South Queensferry, which is one of our favourite places for a wander. The main reason for our trip was to take a look at the progress of the new Forth Road Bridge which is currently being built there, and which was pretty cool to see in its partially finished state: seriously, if someone doesn’t use that thing as the location for some kind of thriller, I may have to do it myself. I mean, I can just see it – someone is chased out onto the bridge, running along the narrow walkway until they reach the sheer drop at the end… the rain beats down as their pursuer reaches them… there’s a short tussle, and then, OMG! Someone is hanging off the end of the bridge! COME ON, Hollywood – you know you want to!)
(This, incidentally, will be the third bridge across this part of the Firth of Forth, and there’s currently some debate over what it should be called. If they don’t go with “The Third Firth of Forth Bridge”, I will despair in humanity.)
Anyway, Hollywood may not want to make a film about the bridge, but Terry and I did decide to shoot a little video of our day out, which you can see below. Apologies again for showing you exactly the same outfit twice (the photos for both posts were taken on the same day, obviously, but I ended up with so many photos I decided to split them into two posts), but, you know, this time I have my hair up and I’m wearing a denim jacket over the top, so that’s TOTALLY different, no?
