TH' SHORES O' FIFE
Robbie Kennedy Bennett

Sparkle o th salty sea, artistically attracting me,
Pursuing life there on th shores o Fife.

Land for miles seems endlessly I walk and wander tirelessly,
Pursuing life there on th shores o Fife.
The bays and braes along th shores o Fife

QUIET LIKE IN NORTH QUEENSFERRY Robbie Kennedy Bennett

Wheest! On th wend at North Queensferry,
where I chose to pause.
Quiet like in North Queensferry,
surveying surroundings because.
Im drawn by a self-seeking search
early hours I respect,
man and his mettle did they bury
by the Forth in North Queensferry?


Robbie Kennedy Bennett



Most often when I am travelling to Fife I stop by at North Queensferry to view the magnificent Forth Rail Bridge. Usually it is very early in the morning and very quiet.

On this occasion I drove into the village as quietly as I could taking care not to slam my door as I got out of the car. It never ceases to amaze me that the bridge was built before modern day machinery. The very place of North Queensferry must have been bustling with activity. Some of the buildings were around at the time and if they could speak what a tale they could tell.

I often spend time around the bridges of North and South Queensferry and have walked over the road bridge a couple of times. The first time I returned to my car by catching a train that took me over the Forth Bridge.

In 2015 we stayed in the Queensferry Hotel in which our hotel window overlooked the build of what will be Queensferry Crossing and due to open in 2016. We had prime viewing of the day and night activity of what will be another milestone in Scotland's history.

The day of our arrival was producing a few memorable moments as we were in North Queensferry. I attempted to re-enact the pose of standing by the wall with the rail bridge in the background that was kindly taken by the chef of the Albert Hotel. We chose that picture to be on the front cover of WULFRUNIAN FOOTPRINTS in FIFE.

That photo and story was printed in the Black Country Bugle. I have to add that it is a picture that I have looked at many times because of it being on the cover but I got it wrong as I leaned on the wall with my wrong arm!
