Day 71 Return to Fife

Monday 15 June 2015

Dundee to Wormit (across Tay Bridge)
5 miles
Ruth’s house

I left Shetland on the Sunday evening ferry and, after 12 hours of mostly lying down trying not to let the motion of the boat make me feel sick, I arrived at Aberdeen at 7 am. I caught the train from Aberdeen to Dundee and then walked over the Tay Bridge and back into the Kingdom of Fife. Unusually, pedestrians walk down the middle of the bridge with the traffic lanes either side. Not sure it’s my favourite design!

Walking over the Tay Bridge with Dundee Law behind me
  My friend Ruth had kindly offered me the use of his house so I can hopefully walk “light” for a few days around the Fife coast. 

Although not technically a walking day I still covered 5 miles of coastline and then a further 3 walking to and from the shops. I also managed to get a haircut. And all this while still feeling the motion of the boat; I must have looked drunk as I felt like I was swaying more than walking!

    Just been reading your last blog about your “wee” holiday in Shetland. Sounds like a great place! And as ever love seeing all the photos. Hope you’re having a good time and still enjoying the walking. Ingrid, Coldingham

      Thanks for your message Ingrid. Shetland was wonderful and East Neuk of Fife good too. I hope the weather holds!

    Lucy, I
    Must introduce you to the concept of flying. Saves on sea sickness!

      Ah but now I’m a pensioner I can’t afford the air fare! The ferry was considerably cheaper

    You’ve got a bit of catching up to do! I appreciate it must take a while to write as much as you do, what about just a report of miles and location if you can’t do a full report? Jo xxx
