A Walk Around Aberdeen

The cast iron railing over the railway bridge.
We had been warned by Rae and Marty not drive to Aberdeen as the traffic was awful and parking expensive.  So, we took the bus; 6 pounds each with return. After riding through downtown to the bus/train station, we were grateful for their advice.
The street and sidewalks are very busy.
Our day was mostly dry, so walking was enjoyable.  The shops were busy, and shopping centers looked like regular old buildings on the outside, but the insides had been renovated to be modern.

The symbol of the City of Aberdeen.
The one thing that hit both of us was how grey everything is.  The buildings are made from grey granite, the sky is mostly grey, even though it's July, everyone was wearing their coats and scarves.  I don't think I would like to visit in December when the light level is very low.

Supercuts, just for Liann who cuts my hair at the Broadway and Harrison Supercuts in Tucson.  No, I didn't get a haircut, but they started at 5.95 pounds, which is less than $10.
