Congregational Outing September 2013
Then it was on to Dumfries to explore the town before making our way to the world famous 'Globe Inn' where we were again treated to a most interesting and knowledgable narrative by Jane Brown, of the rooms and contents held there relating to Burns. Our day was made complete with our usual outing 'High Tea'. We also thank Jane for the witty narrative she delivered, at the close of our feast. The lady herself is quite a 'wit'
The Outing was organised by Rena Robertson, while May McKelvie laboured in the background
' O Lord since we have fasted thus, which we so little merit, let Meg now take away the flesh and Jock bring in the spirit! '
Members and friends of our congregation spent a pleasant day on the Burns' Trail beginning at Ellisland Farm, a few miles outside Dumfries and situated on the banks of the River Nith. Our appreciation and thanks go to our guide there, Les Byers, who excellently explained many facets of Ellisland around the time of Burns. Thanks also to Mrs Byers who served our morning teas and coffee.
