Desert Vista High School junior James Gossett wasn’t sure what to expect visiting Scotland’s craggy shore of the North Sea in July.
James didn’t remember much from his only other visit to Anstruther, where the family of his mother, Jill, goes back 200 years. After all, he was only 6 months old.
This time, the lanky, basketball-playing 16-year-old was not just visiting this historic fishing village on the southern coast of the East Neuk of Fife.
He was there to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Cellardyke Sea Queen Gala.
That gala started in 1948 to celebrate the village’s centuries-old fishing community and relationship with the sea. For more than 150 years, it was one of Scotland’s primary fishing communities, and the locals still gather to celebrate its glorious past.
