Friday, Fife

Friday, Scotland


On another beautiful day in Kirkcaldy, we set out in several different directions. One group went to the seaside, another to Saint Andrews to see the famous golf courses, others stayed in town and some of us returned to Edinburgh, where Jason was the subject of articles by the Scotsman and the Edinburgh Evening News.

Six of us took the Majestic City bus tour to get an overview of Edinburgh. It is a fairly cosmopolitan city as compared with Glasgow. One person termed Edinburgh a large town.

We all gathered again in the evening to have dinner in the nearby village of Fruechie. It was really our last night with the entire group since some folks are flying out of Glasgow and staying their tomorrow night. We took over the restaurant hotel and had traditional Scottish food. Some even had the famous Haggis, Neeps and Tatties. If you don’t think about what Haggis is, it isn’t so bad. Several folks were game.

My favorite accomplishment over dinner was that of Margaret Bakalian. She is a very new GPS user. Margaret stayed in Kirkcaldy today and mapped out a route to the local travel agency. She said she plugged in the address and asked for a pedestrian route. There were 15 points in the route. Half way through the route her husband, said, “I don’t think this is the right way.” They persisted with the route since there wasn’t much of a choice otherwise. Sure enough, Margaret directed them to the Travel Agency, her first completely solo route. Cheers to Margaret and to the Fife Society for the Blind for turning us on to a wonderful slice of Scottish culture.
