The pretty seaside town of Pittenweem sits on Scotland’s east coast, in the Kingdom of Fife.
With its red-roofed, white-washed buildings and quiet streets, it’s a delightful place to take a stroll and relax on a sunny day.
Not all of the bikes were the right way up.
And at least one little bike had jumped up above street level.
Pittenweem’s attractive ice cream shop had a bike secured outside the front door (you can only see the back wheel of it in the picture, I’m afraid).
It was such a gloriously sunny day when I was snapping away at all these bikes that I felt I was somewhere considerably more exotic than the east coast of Scotland.
All of this bicycle business was pretty exhausting, but luckily revitalising victuals weren’t far away.
At the excellent Cocoa Tree Cafe, I fuelled up on an exquisite chocolate cake and a pot of cardamom tea:
My treat came with a jug of single cream and I was very pleased with the little slug that formed when I poured the cream over the cake:
My delightful assistant sated her hunger with a cream scone:

If you’re ever mooching around in the Fife area wondering how to fill your time, I heartily recommend a trip to Pittenweem.
