I was working in Musselburgh this afternoon, the place where I started my teaching career and where the pupils reassured me that the town was certainly not a suburb of Edinburgh. Indeed, it is a town in its own right, the 'Honest Toun', in fact, where every year the Honest Lad and Honest Lass are crowned, celebrating this place's fascination with not telling porkies. Or something like that.

This is the River Esk snapped from the top of the Number 44, cutting the town centre in two and offering plenty of nice walks down to Fisherrow and the harbour. Musselburgh, as the name suggests, was once (and still is to a lesser extent) a fishing town serving Portobello, Edinburgh beach area and the towns and cities beyond.

Hello again. What is bubbling out of the water? Is it the current? Fish? Mussels?

It's the current - the water is quite shallow but here the River is very close to the sea, too.
