Yesterday was St Monans’ Sea Queen Day. I’ve written about this event before. Yesterday it was different. The Scottish summer weather intervened and plans had to be adjusted. Instead of the traditional harbourside location for the main activities, (almost) everything had to be brought indoors. The ‘wet weather’ plan was initiated on Friday, so that the show could go on.
Overall, I think it was a good example of community resilience and adaptability. As an outsider, the atmosphere wasn’t the same. But it seemed to me that the local people were enjoying their day, and celebrating their connected-ness.
I hope the sun shines next year though!
