There's a group of Italian tourists standing on the other side of the road outside outside the 'wee house'. They're chatting away animatedly as their guide points out where Kate had a cup of coffee with William.
Our morning walk takes us through the medical department gardens. There's a small cellophane wrapped wreath on the ground alongside a freshly varnished bench. Around town and on the golf courses there are scores of these memorial benches. All have small brass plaques attached to them with sentiments like ' He worked in Detroit but his heart was in St.Andrews '. Someone in the town council arranges for a floral arrangement to be put out on the requisite bench on the anniversary of the donors death. There is something rather wonderful about these old fashioned courtesies. The wreath on the ground has been moved by the bench varnishers.
