As the route no longer included Tayport we ended up stopping for brunch at kitschnbake.co.uk in Newport which is fast becoming a favourite! Thinking it sounded relatively healthy, I ordered the cheesy beans on toast, and if pretty much a whole tin of beans counts as healthy then it passed that test....
Typically, the rain had actually gone off by the time we left to head back to the bridge car park! Still, it meant I could take some pictures of the Magellan cruise ship that was docked for a couple of days before it's trip to Iceland.
As you can see, it's some size. One day we'll probably book ourselves a cruise, either to Iceland or the Norwegian Fjords. You can usually get a 2 for 1 offer if you book far enough in advance, and although lots of things about cruising don't appeal (onboard entertainment, dodgy buffets...) it's probably the best way to see the Fjords.
As it was a shorter ride than planned I didn't need much persuading to go for a walk to Jessie's Kitchen in the afternoon, and it had actually turned into a pleasant day by then. My strawberry meringue was very pretty but a bit of a challenge to eat!
Saturday night was a beer and a film kind of night, so we watched the brilliant Sing Street and I finally had the Drygate breakfast stout that's been in the fridge for a few weeks now
As Dave's off Coast to Coasting next weekend I may well have a weekend off the beers, though hopefully not off the bike!
