Wonderful day out thanks to the Seagull Trust, Ratho. We all piled into our coach (the lovely Neil driving us!). Wet, wet start to the afternoon but spirits were high and the sun was out by the time we travelled along the canal. So relaxing and great to travel at such a leisurely pace. Fun had by all.
