On Saturday we went for a drive there and wondered why it was so busy, it was their gala day so I didn't get as many photos as I wanted but here are a few.
|The park is just off the main road and beautiful|
|Another park,right in town,picnic anyone?|
|I'm going back to have coffee here.|
|The main street.Waiting for the procession.|
I think England has lots of lovely towns like this but there are not many near Glasgow.The nearest really nice towns I can think of are in Aberdeen, where I love,Inverurie and Banchory. Unless someone disagrees with me. I'm happy for them to do so.
|Balloon sellers and crowds gathering.|
|What I call my arty photo.|
|There's a miniature railway and a boating pond.|
|Another tea room|
|The park getting ready for the crowning of the gala queen.|
There are lots of independant shops here,a cute baby shop and gift shop,a butchers and home bakery,so much nicer than having to shop in a large supermarket.
I didn't take any photos of the lovely floats that passed us, it was too busy and my photos would have been full of heads,so I did what Jo was telling us to do on her blog and that was,just look,no need to always take photos,so I put the camera back in my bag and just enjoyed the rest of the day. Hope you're proud of me Jo.
With it being Gala Day the town had a holiday atmosphere,pubs and cafes were all busy so we didn't get a proper feel for the place but..we'll be back!
