It has been officially 2 years since I moved to Thurso. It was a gloriously sunny day, deceptively sunny as 2 years on the weather couldn't be more grey.
The main man in the work is Thurso's Robert Dick, geologist and botanist which explains the leaves and ferns and that.
This week Thurso is holding a German Exchange. See, the town of Thurso is twinned with Brilon. The towns were twinned in 1979.
Take a wander, as you will in Thurso, down the promenade and you will come across a patch of grass next to the Pavilion. There, amongst the grey and concrete stands a strange black and gold Victorian-esque statue. Now I’ll be honest. I walked by this thing loads of times and never really gave it…
The steps to the sea are unassuming, uneven, covered in grass and a totally pleasant surprise!
