Location: Fife | Time: Afternoon
Sarah: So it was a weekend and I was off work for a change so did my duty and took dad for a walk. We met in Dundee but the weather was awful so we headed to Fife where we were lead to believe it would be better. But how wrong we were…
It was throwing it down and after an attempt at walking a hill outside Coupar but almost drowning in the downpour, we decided to go to the coast and see if we could sit out the rain in the warmth and comfort of a cafe.
So to Leven we went and as we waited for the storm to pass we brought a blue haired, mood spotted, diabetic monster called Errol into existence. But the weather was not going to play nice and after giving Errol his story and friends we headed to Glenrothes to hide until the sun showed its face. Which it eventually did so we headed back down the Fife coastal route along the firth of Forth.
And what a good idea that was – as we approached Largo the sun broke through and gave the most perfect golden sky with beams streaming through. Absolutely stunning! So we kept on down the coastal route to Elie where the sky was still striking and the beach beautiful. We walked over to the old changing tower for the Lady Anstruther built around 1750 so she could undress before she went nude seabathing!
As you can see from the photo it is a rocky part of coast so would of been quite invigorating to swim in. Us Scots are a tough lot!!! So as the Storm came over again it was into St Andrews for a lovely dinner. So all in all, although very wet, it was a lovely day. Father was well exercised and Errol was happy to be alive!
