Other camera photo diary St Andrews August 1-10th 2015 prt 1

 St Andrews West Sands on the Monday afternoon on a walk with Caroline.
 Preparations before we left: crochet ribbing for a skirt waistband in navy soft cotton 4 ply from Yeoman, 4 mm hook.

 The pattern I chose: Roslind skirt from Interweave Crochet: my first skirt pattern.
 Lunch at TEbay services, a lovely view over a mini-lake.

 Many rows finished on just the first day in the car: left at 9:30 am , arrived in Moffatt by about 5 pm.

 The medallions were the trickiest to do in the car but totally worth it. The pattern also kept my interest with the variety in each row.
 Palatial bedroom at the B&B in Moffatt.

 Back to West Sands on the Monday.
 High spectator stands at the old golf course being dismantled now after the Open.
 Cartoon card for dance teacher 1st 3 days.
Pianist for the first three days. Brilliant music, quite fabulous.
Younger Hall Thursday .Half the  Highland dem team just walking on from the far left.
I think there were 14 in the team the video recording is on YouTube.

This is the Ladies' Step demonstration dance:

And this is the Country Dance dem : the Library of Birmingham dance from book 49.

Friday tea break time the sea called rather than the coffee shop! As we were so close to the Castle beach....

Jorn and Mario already on the beach.

Taking a panorama view..

Dorothea paddling, I joined her a bit later, it was freezing cold but good for sore dancing feet!
Then for ice cream after class with Susan and Eve.

 The turret house I loved in 2012 is for sale???  At Kennedy Gardens with a view over the University buildings and car park to the sea and the hills beyond.

Turns out it was the penthouse apartment only, the one with turrets and a glass roof terrace!
£600,000 anyone??? Holiday flat for Summer schools to come indefinitely? And let to golfers the rest of the time?
Where's that lottery ticket?!
Due to the Lammas Fair the Cathedral grounds were open to the public free of charge so it's the first time I went inside. See next post.

St Andrews photo diary 1st week in August 2015

 Wandering about in St Andrews on the Sunday afternoon after arriving at University Hall at 1 pm.

 University gates were open: so had a look at the quad.

 Then off to see the SEA! and the harbour pier in the distance far right, veering off to the left.

Castle beach from a side view. Hills in the far distance not showing up. 

 There they are hills behind on the horizon of a castle view.

Love this view and never tire of it.

Proper Scottish Thistles!

 Younger Hall with it's amazing and fabulous bouncy dance floor! The BEST ever.

 Olde Worlde BOOKSHOP Miss Y might like...

I should try this with TARTAN ribbons!

Chocolates but I never went inside.

 This is where my ever popular v=cream lace scarf came from in 2012! Did not go in this time, not to be tempted! Have the website instead.

 AAAAAAAAH! Such BLUES! On the castle beach on the Thursday in tea break.
 Finally found a BATH and had one Friday. Skin in a very sorry state by then, had been having showers in Lumsden.
Tennis courts.
 East Sands Beach with Caroline on Saturday afternoon. Warm and sunny at first, then quite windy.

 Putting sandals back on....

 Tiffany, Caroline and Ely all putting shoes/sandals back on after paddling in the sea.

 Look closely and you can see a circle formation.
 Bye bye Abbey.
 Started with and will finish with a bit of window-shopping. Such lovely jewellery!

 Swirly silver and blues bracelet, earrings and pendant to die for!
 Kennedy Gardens bunny to send photo to Miss Y as she was home alone while Miss E was working that day. I kept texting photos so she could virtually join in with the walk.
There are usually 8-12 bunnies here every day.

The view from the 4th floor kitchen! You can see the SEA! ( JUST)

 For tea, coffee and hot chocolate.
 LONG corridors.
That was all from the Yellow camera for the week. Bye.
