The A917, a two lane road, runs a ribbon east-west through the coastal villages of Elie, St. Monans, Pittenweem, Anstruther and Crail to the eastern point of the Balcomie links. A footpath links the villages.
Before I begin on the new cottage, the new library, the new life, I'll set the scene:
Here is Pittenweem Harbor, the village where I am staying, the shore with the tide in, the taste of what Autumn looks like through the trees on the road to St. Andrews, the home of golf and the St. Andrews University where Prince William and Kate Middleton met...but I'll get to that later.
as if God's paintbrush was flicked over the hills and left yellow, orange, gold and red in watercolor and dabbed, smeared and brushed into shape.
