It all began as idea to take some of our folk who won't get a holiday for a day to the seaside.
Then it widened to an invitation for whoever wanted to come along to join us.
And in the end fourteen of us landed up in Troon, having travelled by train, had a picnic, made sandcastles, paddled in the sea, some went to a teashop, others to a play park, and most to the chippy for tea.
We were a very international group - eight non Brits, of three different ethnicities, and six Brits.
We were a wide range of ages - three children, and adults in the range 20s to early 70s
We were family or community or church...
And it was a grand day out.
