Re: [Peterhead] Peterhead visit
- Hello Keith;
I long to see those 40 foot waves. No, I have no Leslie relatives in Peterhead at the moment, but Huchisons, Smiths, Woolners and Davidsons.

I took my wife up to the Bloo Toon 3 yrs ago - it was February and we
couldn't have chosen a worse day! - 40 foot high waves coming crashing
in over the breakwater. I was alright - being accustomed to the weather
there - you get used to after 15 years or so! - but my wife had never
experienced anything like it, turning against the wind to catch her
btw - you are no relation of the Leslies who own the fruiterers shop in
