Riverside Park

What a truly glorious day for a walk. We left the church in 3 cars and headed to Riverside Park in Glenrothes. This walk was led by Carol and Bill and we started from the top car park.
This walk included well maintained parkland, woodland and riverside walking. There was something on this walk to suit all tastes. It was lovely to see families out enjoying the sunshine Children played in the play parks and paddled in the gentle sandy slopes of the river. The trees a beautiful spring green colour let through dappled light to a multitude of wild flowers. It seemed to that the birds were singing a special chorus, so lovely was the sound.
As usual there was lots of chat and laughter but as it was so warm and we were meandering rather than walking we took the decision to slightly shorten the walk to 4 miles.
Gathering back at the cars we said our Walkers prayer and headed off to The Pavillion in Glenrothes, home to the Glenrothes Strollers Football Club. The staff very kindly kept the cafe opened a bit later to allow us to meet there for our refreshments. Absolutely no complaints about the scones, cakes or service from us, first class. We will return
Thanks to Carol and Bill, a lovely walk
