The call of the sea

Perhaps the ship yard at Burntisland is not exactly scenic, but how refreshing to see some sea-related industry rather than new flats in a filled-in harbour. What a day to be on the water! And with a rowing-and-sailing dinghy it would be a joy even without a breath of wind like today. But time for my meeting…
