I sit here in the quiet house waiting on David to return from his weekend away. The heating has clicked off and the house starts to cool back down again - its very definitely verging on winter weather here in Glasgow. And I am thinking about the last day of our October holidays in Dysart. We spent our first weekend away together 15 years ago in Fife and on the way home we visited Dysart to see where D's much loved granny lived. I remember being touched that he shared that visit with me and I thought about how good it was to return with our precious wee family in tow. I love the second picture of him and the boy, one looking out to sea and one looking into the past.
Sadly its not the most attractive environment these days, despite a lot of innovative regeneration Dysart remains a deprived area - but there are still so many unexpected and beautiful reasons to drop in if you happen to be passing. The blue poles at the harbour are stunning, Sea Beams by Donald Urquhart. Nine 20 foot poles in an arresting range of blues meant to signify the breadth of blue in the ocean. Here they are again if you missed them before.
And with that I wish you all a bright and happy week, Jo xx
