Situated next to the theatre, this is quite a pleasant spot to be surveying in. I’m at the heart of the Musselbrough hustle and bustle, yet within just a couple of minutes walk I am able to take a break and have my lunch by the sea side.
Situated directly next to several busy bus stops, I am definiately a curiousity to the awaiting bus goers, as I conduct my close inspection of the nearby trees.
En-route to this site in Musselburgh I pass through Portobello and find some lichens in a most un-lichenly place… a top a rubbish bin! Not so un-lichenly really though, when one thinks of the numerous seagulls leaving bird droppings whilst perched on top of the bins surveying the local area for a fallen bit of sandwich, the remnants of a crumbly biscuit, a dropped chip or runny dripped icecream. Either that or hanging around waiting to pull their lunch out directly from the bin when no one is looking!
