On Sunday, 28th January, 13 members of the Group met at Morrisons and proceeded through Invertiel, under the Railway Bridge, turning into the Jawbanes Road.   As we climbed, we encountered some drizzle and a strong wind.
After a couple of miles we arrived at the crossroads, turning left for the undulating but scenic route to Kinghorn.   Continued through Kinghorn to join the Coastal Path to return to Kirkcaldy.
A bit of water and mud on the path making it tricky under foot in some places added to by the return of more drizzle in the latter stages of the walk.   All quiet on the river, not a whale to be seen.  However an enjoyable outing overall.
Refreshments were taken at Morrisons where we coincidentally met our Minister, Robin, who concluded our outing with an appropriate prayer.
The walk covered 6.3 miles. Well done everybody.

Bonnybank, Kennoway

What a lovely winter's day for a country walk. Very cold but dry, and blue skies above.
We wished each other a Happy New Year and welcomed Stewart, a new walker, to our group.
Ten of us made the journey to Kennoway and parked up at Springbank Terrace before walking up the hill out of the town towards Bonnybank Inn.
Just before the pub we took a left onto a road which led past the cattery and several houses which together make up the hamlet of Baintown.
Surprisingly, although it was a country road we had to be on our mettle as there were a good few cars passed us with not much room to spare. It was a gentle incline, not enough to get puffed,  as we made our way to the half way point and we turned to take in the view - beyond Leven we could see the Forth and in the distance, the Hills above Edinburgh. the low winter sun casting a lovely orangey shade to the landscape.   
We had lots of chat to catch upon: Christmas and New Year reports, good news  - a first time grandmother in the group - and concern for friends who are not quite fit enough to be with us today. We hope Rona gets back to good health very soon. Talk about our families and our hopes for 2018 kept us engaged for the entire 5 miles walk and most said they hadn't noticed the miles passing.
We prayed together before moving on to Wellsgreen Golf Range where a table had been reserved for us right in front of a gorgeous fire. Lovely newly baked scones and very welcome coffees were served by pleasant staff and not overpriced into the bargain. 5 stars Wellsgreen despite being very busy!
We agreed that 28th Jan would be our next walk.  
Lovely walk and good company. 

Aw Naw!! nobody took a photo today!!
