On to the next one

Here's the next installment on my road trip to St Andrews. We passed many award winning beaches, but just look at this!! It was such a beautiful day, although very cold.
 Hence why my Mum is wearing a furry hat.
 Many times we found these beaches by taking wrong turnings. One such wrong turning we ended up finding this mini-gym park. SO fun! I'd missed going to the gym that day due to packing and getting everything sorted for our journey and so this was perfect. Can you imagine going to a gym with these kinds of views!? You'd never want to leave.
WARNING: TURN DOWN THE VOLUME - IT WAS REALLY WINDY! Quite amusing to watch, although slightly long, sorry.

 A lot of the machines/equipment used your own body weight so were actually quite tough.
 This is Elie, where we stopped for lunch. HOW GORGEOUS! We found a lovely little pub called The Ship Inn, apparently its award winning, we didn't even know, just stumbled upon it. We were travelling for quite a while without food and my stomach was killing me from hunger (I've had issues with this recently, too much pain from hunger, don't think its right..maybe I'm growing...hahaha unlikely)
 The view itself was prize worthy.
My Mum made me pose like this. 

The service was great, the staff were lovely. We both had starters, but were far too ravenous to even think to take pictures. I had a hummus with warm pitta (homemade..was fantastic) and my Mum had a Scotch egg (when in Scotland) with a beetroot and radish pickle, which was equally lovely.

For our mains we both had a half portion of haddock and chips. This was the best fish and chips I've ever had. Seriously. The batter was SO lightly delicate it was barely there, exactly what you want. The chips tasted as if they'd been cooked in truffle oil and were delightfully waxy.

Come back tomorrow for the next installment, next stop St. Andrews!
