Out and about in Fife...

Yesterday we went out for the day within the East Neuk of Fife.Our first stop was at Anstruther where we sampled the delights of the award winning " Anstruther Fish Bar" excellent fish well cooked ( Hake in our case) with great chips. The shop is always busy and rightly renown far and near.
After wards we drove to Pittenweem ( as depicted in photos) where it's Arts Festival is currently taking place. Parking was in a field where the weekend's rain had transformed the "road" for cars into a quagmire!

After some light beachcoming- see photo enclosed ,we looked around the venues displaying the work of many artists. You might notice the gazebos which artist erected just outside their houses.
Around the village there are some 90 or houses,galleries,halls etc to visit.People throw open their homes to display their artwork or serve teas etc for the week of the festival. Invited artists display as well as locals. An astonishing variety of talent is on display and we wandered happily for over three hours. The sunne came out and an excellent day was had by all. The vernacular architecture of the buildings is just crying out to be modelled on the tabletop with their stepped gables , pantiles and charm...
