It seems a long time since Saturday and our jaunt out. The EM got the weather forecast right, it was sunny though still a bit nippy and he was right about today too - it's been dull and drizzly all day. Methinks he has missed his vocation, instead of being a scientist he should have been a meteorologist :)
So being sunny, we went about 5 miles down the coast from Ayr to the little fishing village of Dunure. Not the bustling harbour it once was but there is still some fishing activity and it is well-kept to encourage tourists.
The ruined Dunure Castle is quite a visitor attraction in the summer.
Because I'm usually the one taking the photographs this is a rarity. The EM is testing out his new camera so all the photos here were taken by him for a change. My jacket looks yellow here but actually it is a very pretty light green. So much for the adage the camera never lies, here it definitely is lying because as you may remember from an earlier post I never wear yellow!
Sadly the little local shop closed a couple of years ago but the building is now a really cosy cafe. After we had walked around and trawled the shingle for shells we stopped in at the cafe for a panini and a latte - lovely. There is some really nice fishing related artwork adorning the walls and shelves in the cafe so if you ever get the opportunity please take a trip over to Dunure and take a look.
I hope to be back later to announce the winner of my giveaway and show a couple of hauls I got this weekend.
In the meantime happy crafting to you all,
