Dalgety Bay

What a lovely day, sun shining brightly but windy enough to blow us off our feet and certainly blow the cobwebs away. Today's walk combined some town and coast walking at Dalgety Bay. Parking at Dobbies Garden Centre nine walkers headed down Harbour Drive into Harbour Place which took us onto the Fife Coastal Path. The winds were whipping up the Forth turning the water into white topped waves. We looked out onto the Forth Rail Bridge with the tops of the Road Bridge and the new Queensferry Crossing behind. Unfortunately we couldn't get a picture of the bridges as the sun was in the wrong place!!

Walking east along the coastal path, daffodils, snowdrops and crocuses bloomed and gardens were coming to life. We passed some huge houses on The Bridges and Lumsdaine Drive all architecturally different and very modern. We commented on the magnificent views they had but we didn't fancy cleaning the very large windows. Passing the lovely converted Donibristle House we walked around Dalgety Bay Sailing Club where some of the young people had been out for a sail. The walk was relatively easy going with some short inclines but not too many. Turning we walked along Moray Way South and headed back to our starting point.

Joe was there to meet us and we all we enjoyed our refreshments. The fresh cream scones just finished the afternoon perfectly. As usual there was lots of chat and laughter and after saying our walkers prayer we bade each other goodbye and headed to the cars and home
