The Alphagenes and Highlander Lab participated in an Escape room last weekend. The group divided in two and battled against each other to escape first. We all had a great time and although not everyone escaped the pirates, we still finished with smiley faces.
Afterwards we celebrated our victory (or loss) together and had a lovely dinner at Chez Jules. We finished our night full of good food and an excellent experience.
The Alphagenes “run4fun” team joined the Edinburgh Winter 5K Run event last weekend. The weather was not promising at the beginning, but during the run we enjoyed the sun and a rainbow. We all finished with smiley faces (well most of us did).
Looking forward to many more!
AlphaGenes attended Octobeerfest just down the road at Stewart Brewing. We had a great night welcoming new group members and sampling their inventions. Well, most of us…
Due to really nice weather in Scotland AlphaGenes decided to have BBQ at the Bush Estate.
AlphaGenes had another Social event on Sunday. We met in front of the Scottish Sea Bird Centre in North Berwick and continued walking along the beach to the lovely Milsey Bay before we reached Tantallon Castle. Tantallon Castle is the last medieval curtain wall castle to be constructed in Scotland and played an important part in Oliver Cromwell’s invasion of Scotland in 1651. From the castle, there are lovely views across the Firth of Forth to the Bass Rock, home to a large colony of gannets.
Weather was really amazing (for Scotland of course!) and we were all tired and hungry by the time we returned back to North Berwick. Decided to have lunch and beer at the Rocketeer Restaurant. We could not resist amazing and very well deserved ice cream at Alandas Gelateria after lunch.
