Sam’s Day Out Wednesday 12 April 2017

We wished for a warm day, at last- but nae such luck Jimmy.

Met at Monkton, trying to rain & not very warm. The intention was to head for New Galloway for 11ses & meet Drew & his pal who’s name escapes me ( You can sort it Norrie?) Richard. (N).Toilet stopThe Smithy Coffee stop

A great run down & Sam had his new gal, Elizabeth with him.

Sure enough all met OK & then, via Newton Stewart eventually to Isle of Whithorn. Road surfaces hellish & particularly hellish on John’s ER6F, which tends to bounce on anything rougher than a billiard table- effing knackering!Lunch-Isle of WhithornIsle of Whithorn (2)Isle of Whithorn (4)

Nice new cafe in I of W partly financed by you through the National Lottery Fund. Established to assist & enhance the Community . If the town itself is not too pretty, the shoreline along the coast is inspiring, especially as the white horses are crashing over the dunes. *did I mention it was ffffreezing?

JH/Sam were kind enough to stick to more acceptable roads thereafter, but the weather deteriorated. Most of the return journey was on the A77, which is always challenging/exciting in the overtaking stakes

Glad to get home- shame we did away with the bath- showers are not quite the same!
