Today, I discovered three things that are interesting to me.
1. EAT@Crombie isn't open until noon in the summer.
this led to two other things
2. While walking up College Bounds to buy some milk to put in my afternoon coffee, a plum hit me on the head.
That's right, there's a plum tree in front of the Humanity Manse. I ate three of them. Yum.
3. On the way back to E@C, I noticed a tiny little sign that said 'Snow Kirk'. It's now a cemetary
It's tucked between Crombie, a car park, and some houses. I feel full of squee when I come across new things I'd not seen here before.
Apparently, the little kirk was started to be the parish church when Old Aberdeen became the Burgh of Barony. I did recognize one grave stone, that of Gilbert Menzies, a Catholic. (I recognized the name because he's one of the provosts of Aberdeen about the time the university got started.)
Speaking of things I'd not seen before, the Townhouse at Old Aberdeen
is now open to the public.
Currently, there are a few paintings on display. I believe they have plans to make it a bit more of an attraction.
Also, I should take more pictures of Old Aberdeen. It's truly like living in a renaissance town sometimes. :)
