Trips to Isle of May
by Captain Pugwash
A day at sea
Nothing digital about this sign. In the Kingdom of Fife we like to do things that take us back to the days when things were less stressful and had more of an earthy feel to them.
I really like this photo. Not only does it advertise the trip to the Isle of May from Anstruther (to which you can return for traditional fish n chips and mushy peas!) - but it tells us that we can expect to see Puffins, Seals and view the Benedictine Priory and feel the history.
A day on the May Princess will take you away from all the stresses of modern life and let you draw near to nature.
Now I know you would expect me to say that going to sea is good for you - but the truth is that it is! Not only the fresh sea air, but at sea there is a clear sense of timelessness. The boat is slow, the Island slowly gets bigger and bigger and the land smaller and smaller.
Make sure you take binoculars with you and a coat, as even on a hot day it can be breezy 'at sea'.
You can get from the photo an idea of the times and details - this is a must if you are visiting our wonderful Kingdom. If you are not a good sailor there is a Chemist just opposite in Anstruther where you can get your 'sea sick tablets' - failing that pick a day that is nice and calm and let the whole experience take away your cares for the day.
The sailing goes from Anstruther's main street opposite the Fishery museum.
Go for it! remember Captain Pugwash said it!
