Burntisland Christmas Outing

Christmas Outing

Sunday 14 December

Venue: Potter About Burntisland


Enthusiasm uncurbed by the drench day 15 walkers set out from Bennochy towards Burntisland stopping Beveridge Park to walk one circumference of the park anticlockwise (that's the route which has less of an incline). There was no dilly dallying at once back at the cars we headed to Burntisland parking at the Links car park


We were welcomed at the door of Potter About by Lorna and Pat, co-owners and the cafe was a lovely warm and welcoming retreat from the weather. Normally closed on a Sunday they kindly opened especially for us, thanks to them both for giving up their precious day off

Down to business. The tables were all set up for us with brushes, water and all we had to do was select the piece of pottery of our choice for painting and select our paints from a great range of colours


Silence reigned, but not for long as we all had 100% concentration while starting to paint. There were some examples of already decorated pottery and some of us used these for ideas. Some of course went totally off piste with great ideas for decoration.


Once our creations were completed we retired to the cafe and had delicious sandwiches, cake (massive) and teas and coffees and lots of chat.


We left our masterpieces in the safe hands of Lorna and Pat as they had to be glazed and fired and we arranged for them to be picked up the following week so we could have them for Christmas


Back to the car we said our walkers prayer, especially thinking of our friends who either by illness, family duties or work could not be with us today

                 "May the Lord of peace himself give you peace always in every way"
