Treasure Hunt and B.B.Q.
The weather stayed kind for our first Treasure Hunt and B.B.Q. in Dalmilling last night. A strong wind kept the rain away as six teams set off with their maps, looking for the answers to a lively numbers quiz set by Ann and Douglas Boyd. These were to be found in the local area, and involved strong powers of observation which, judging by the score sheets, all the teams possessed, as we ended up with a tie between the 'Pirates' and the 'North meets South'. After a nail-biting Tie-breaker, the Pirates were the Lucky winners.
The Treasure Trail ended in the Church Hall where the Rev.Ken Yorke, ably assisted by Master Chef Gwyn Williams and the Ladies provided very tasty barbecued burgers, pizza, biscuits, tea and coffee, with soft drinks and sweeties much enjoyed by everyone.
This happy event was good fun enjoyed by all ages, and thanks must go to all who took part and especially to those who worked hard behind the scenes to make it a success.
Summer returned to the West of Scotland at the week-end with temperatures soaring into the 60's and brilliant Sunshine. So where better to top up the vitamin C than with an overseas visit to Millport,on the Isle of Cumbrae.
The ferry was packed with excited weans, grabbing a real taste of last minute holiday freedom before going back to school, accompanied by Grannies and Grandads wishing it was here already!! There were lots of bikes - big ones, wee ones, stabilised ones ready to add to the hired ones from Millport's own supply - all ready to enjoy the quiet flat roads that make cycling a pleasure - a trip round the island is only 10 miles.
Millport relies on the good weather to bring the visitors to the shops, bringing welcome business to the town. Being a shopkeeper on a small island is not easy, there are many days when poor weather keeps visitor numbers down and it can be a struggle to stay in business - so it was good to see them "getting a wee turn"!!
Millport in the Sun is just Paradise, as is a Nardini's High Fish Tea wi', Bread and Butter in Largs, after the Ferry trip back over to the mainland.
Baptism Service - a Happy Day!
