So, whether it is high art or walking, food or jazz or books or kids or country and western or poetry or sailing or singing or Robert Burns or biking or running or rallying or mining or weaving or gardening or cycling or tree-felling or baking or growing or dancing or star-gazing or bird watching … there’s always something fun to do for everyone of any age.
