Meet a dog walker who asks if I am out painting. I say I will draw if I can find somewhere out of the wind. He tells me where I should go, then patting me on the shoulder says ‘Good luck Mrs Picasso’. I walk on. Turning down the path to the shore the wind hits me and takes my breath away. I turn my back and retreat . In the harbour hundreds of eider ducks think the same as they bob collectively behind the shelter of the pier wall.

Coastal path to Anstruther. High tide.
A kestrel hovers just above my head, unconcerned by my presence. Rain over Pittenweem brings the wind. It rips the paper from my board and I clamber down the rocks to get it back – crumpled and a bit soggy.
