Lower Largo 27/12/11
Our post Christmas Turkey basher (Brussel basher for the vegetarians out there) is now becoming a tradition.
Hubby-dear, Kev, Niall and my good self met up in Lower Largo carpark on a beautiful morning. The few days before, the weather had been pretty miserable and generally blowing a hooly, but not today. After our shuttle, we set off round the bay. Largo Bay itself is fairly featureless and takes a while to cross, especially when there is no breeze helping you along. Is it only me that finds paddling in such calm conditions when the water is glass like fairly tiring or possibly it was just the extra portions of turkey washed down with too much Baileys that was causing the problems! We eventually made it round to Shell Bay and the start of the chain walk. We could have done with the tide being a bit higher as the caves were all dry, however we still got a wee play in amongst the rocks.
We stopped for lunch at Elie before the last stint past St Monans and Pittenweem then round to Anstruther. A quick change in the car park then over to The Ship for a wee pint, purely to rehydrate us you understand.
