Rovers Spring Weekend 2019

Rovers club had their annual spring social weekend in Dundee or “The City of Discovery” as it is known.

On Friday night a few hardy souls drove up to the top of Dundee Law, a volcanic plug that overlooks the city. In the rain and wind Dundonian member Margaret pointed out a few points of interest.
On Saturday morning Margaret continued in the role of a tour guide as the rovers took the city centre circular bus. This was followed by a visit to the Discovery exhibition detailing Captain Scott’s explorations of Antartica.
Afterwards, the rovers dispersed to visit  other sites in the city such as the Verdant Works jute museum, the frigate HMS Unicorn and the V&A museum.

The evening meal was at  Dundee Contemporary Arts and as the rovers left, on foot or by taxi, there was a heavy downpour.

On Sunday morning it was a bit brighter. Some headed home and some remained for an extended stay.
