Forth Road Bridge


Our walking group left the church on Sunday 19th April. There was 18 of us and we welcomed two new walkers Wilma and Ronnie. We started our walk from the car park at the north queens ferry hotel, we were hoping to do the west side of the bridge so we could get a good view of the new bridge but it was closed so we had to do the windy east side. With three novice bridge  walkers, Isobel  Janet and Wilma we hoped they would be ok and once they got chatting and enjoying the views they were fine. Dianne had to leave us halfway to go to work and we met Joe in South Queens Ferry where we walked on though the town to the rail bridge bistro for tea and scones. We were met with a warm welcome and very efficient service from the staff so I think we will be back again soon.
   Mary took some group photos of us on the prom with the bridges in the background , we are so lucky to have such a super place to visit . Back though the town we had a good look at the many gift shops (of course) and over the windy bridge again to our cars, we finished another great walk with the walkers prayer.
  Many thanks for you great company Janis
