Visit to South Lissens Pottery, and Deskford Garden Galleries including lunch,    

An ice cream at Cullen on the way home! I suppose if it is really hot we could also go for a paddle

A super visit to South Lissens Pottery, we think we may well go back for one of their workshops; this was followed by browsing the antiques, collectables and vintage items at Deskford Garden Galleries and then a tasty lunch at the Willows Tea Room We set off at 10.30 and got back 4 hours later.  Great fun and somewhere new for most of us.  No room for ice cream when we got to Cullen and the sea was grey and uninviting so no paddle either - next time maybe.
