A Country Walk in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland, part 4

These are some more of the photos which I took when we went for another walk into the farmland beyond Beveridge Park in Kirkcaldy, Fife.

From a distance it looks like quite a few of the trees are still comletely bare but they all have some growth I’m sure, although they are definitely further behind than usual. We’ve had such weird weather recently that they really don’t know whether it’s spring or winter.

Going for a good walk is an enjoyable way of burning off some calories and cheaper than joining a gym, in fact it costs nothing but time. It’s a shame we don’t all have somewhere nearby us which we can go and have a wander around to get some fresh air.

Wouldn’t it be lovely if the scientists could invent something like the holo-deck on Star Trek and you could decide where you wanted to spend your leisure time and suddenly just be there. Where would you choose to go?

  1. We’ve had strange weather here in the states too. If I could do the holo deck thing I would come to Scotland and go for a walk with you and Jack!

    • Peggy Ann,
      Aha! That would be using the “beam me up Scottie” transformer thingy. That would be great, we would have to make sure it was a more scenic walk.

  2. Wouldn’t it be fun to insert to insert yourself into favorite books via the holodeck? I’d love to walk around Trollope’s Barchester, or to have tea with Peter Wimsey and his mother.

    • Lisa,
      That would be great fun. I fancy going for afternoon tea in Tilling, avoiding Diva’s sardine tartlets of course or having Angela Thirkell pairing me up with one of the inhabitants of Winter Underclose.

    • Pearl,
      It was a good day but we’ve had rain for two days now and it feels like November. The third postcard came, it took 15 days to get here. Thanks, Pearl Harbor looks fab!

      • Amazing how 3 things that were all but stuck together when I put them in the mailbox could arrive at such disparate times. Glad you enjoyed them. We give my SD a Hawaii calendar each year in her Christmas package (which we know to post by Halloween!!) Keeps a little warmth and sunshine in her life.

        • Pearl,
          I originally thought you must have sent them days apart, very strange. When I send things to my uncle in Australia by air mail it only takes four or five days to get there, I don’t know why it shouldn’t be as fast in other parts of the world.

  3. Isn’t it great to see the countryside turning green again! I love all the different shades of green – or should that be tones?

    • Evee,
      Shades/tones – whatever, it’s just great to see things growing again, especially as we seem to be a couple of weeks behind now.
