Good News! Money Raised for Local Charities

I’ve been selling my book ‘The Healing Paths of Fife’ in the past year in local shops with profits going to local charities, including:

Kinghorn Community Library

Kinghorn Play Parks

The Friday Lunch Club (for the elderly)

I would like to thank these Kinghorn establishments for their support:

The Sea Witch, (a place for that unique gift or card), Dragon’s Den (for everything knitting wise) and Harbour View (a wonderful local bistro where you can eat, drink, blether and gaze out over The Firth of Forth towards the sea.

Total given away so far: £317

I am looking to continue to raise money during the summer of 2019, only this charity is another I feel very strongly about:

Kirkcaldy Food Bank

As a volunteer packing parcels of food I have noticed the need grow beyond comprehension over the past year.

I am looking for places in Kirkcaldy, or Burntisland, (which also benefits from the foodbank twice a week) If you know of anywhere I may be able to hold a booksigning or will just have some copies available to sell please get in touch:

dianariduna@yahoo.com

This is my way of giving back something to my local community where we have recently settled.

Diana’s virtual tour of The Fife Coast ~ Kingsbarns to St Andrews

Ambling along grassy slopes,

pausing to glance back at

a craggy coastline

 ~ alone.

Climbing well worn rocky steps

clinging to cliff face.

Awaiting the safety of the out going tide

to reveal

a tiny cove and sandy shore.

Ancient rocks guiding the way,

a wooden bridge, a wooded glen,

 cows munching betwixt

stepping stones,

before the last ascent up wooden steps

and the final destination is in sight.

…..

Diana’s Virtual Tour of the Fife Coast ~ Crail ~ The Jewel of East Neuk

My first awareness of Crail was as a jigsaw puzzle, the harbour being so full of character with its wee fisherman’s cottages and boats bobbing in the water inside the protective harbour wall.

When you first stumble across Crail you usually park in the village, with ample off the road parking, a neat tree lined street of Georgian elegance.  Crail is best explored by foot and each time you do so you will probably find a different route down to the harbour, from narrow paths and castle walls, to steep cobbled roads. Don’t forget to pop into the museum and also enjoy an ice cream, fish and chips or a snack at one of the cafes. There are many sheltered spots for a picnic too. Just head for the castle walls.

It was such a surprise the first time we visited, peering down from the coastal path as it meets the main road, magical if the sun is shining: reminiscent of Cornwall’s Mousehole.

Who would not be inspired by Crail!

The Healing Paths of Fifea memoir, tells the full story in prose, poetry and fantasy.
