We are having a 'Staycation' this year. We spent the first week at home getting on with some things around the farm and having some treats, like a facial and massage and a few lunches out.
On Saturday we headed off to the East coast of Scotland to visit my mum. It was very wet and cold on Saturday, but Sunday turned out to be a lovely sunny day with blue skies, so we decided to go to the villages of the East Neuk of Fife which have pretty harbours and lots of photo opportunities!
We started out at Elie, which is famous for it's golden sands.
We then moved on to St Monans, which is where my mum was born, although she moved from there as a baby and doesn't remember much about it.
