A lovely warm sunny day here in Glasgow today, so I took a trip down memory Lane.

We went to Saltcoats where my parents always took us for the Glasgow Fair Fortnight. It is so changed and the beach is a mess as there is a lot of Construction work going on. There is a sign up saying, ' Flood Protection Work' . I'm sure in a few years time it will look really nice when all the work is finished.

Lots of new house's and Flats and this made it difficult to know exactly where the streets were that I was looking for, to see the house's that mum used to rent for the two weeks, so I never found them.
One was a Cottage in the grounds of a big house, we used the side entrance and it was our favourite place as there was a big garden to play in and only a few minute's from the beach and the Putting Greens. As far as I remember there was a Chapel, St. Mary's where we went for Mass at the top of that road. But I couldn't find the Chapel either. A lot of these old house's were probably demolished a long time ago.

I did find the wee Tea Room around from the Railway Station where our parents always took us for a fish tea when we arrived. I took a picture of it and some other picture's to send to my sister as she had intended going to Saltcoats when her and her husband were here, but there were too many other things that they wanted to do, so they did not get there.
There is also a Fun Fair for the children and it was vey busy, and swings and a climbing frame in free play area, that was also busy.

The Town was very busy, probably some like us, Day Trippers. The weather was really warm with a nice refreshing breeze off the sea.

We enjoyed the day out. smile.gif
Java
Ah lost ma connection there for a wee while, but on the plus side, ah managed to catch a wee programme on Val Doonican. He's a lovely man, sure he is, big jumpers, rockin' chair and all...ah wonder if Musicthom has big jumpers...biggrin.gif laugh.gif
maryhillgal
My husband and I did a wee trip down memory lane today also. We drove my son up to Aberdeen [left Glasgow at 7.15 a.m]. to catch the helicopter to get him out to his rig. Then we went to the beach and it was an absolute scorcher - loads of kids in the North Sea swimming. I haven't seen the beach so busy since I was a kid. Had a great day.
glasgow lass
Yooz are so lucky smile.gif and what does Val Doonican do ? unsure.gif
Heather
Wears a lot of fancy sweaters as well as singing a few songs. laugh.gif
Elma
