Because the forecast was so definitely good, decided on a Monday Run. Since the plan was to go to Oban via Connel, naturally we contacted Eoghainn (prev Chairman) and he & Rhona suggested Poppies just beyond Connel for lunch, & they managed to join us there. Guess what, on a b—y Harley- most things can be forgiven, but a b H!!!)
We kicked off at Milton, then brekkers in the sun at Tarbet, some 8 of us. Then Tony Moth & Sue appeared briefly and by a different route joined us for lunch.
From Tarbet a great run to Inveraray (Johnny more mindful of Police see previous story). There we caught up with Arthur, who had bravely preceded us & then to Connel (beautiful scenery). The McLeods had booked a table for us outside overlooking the bay. An ideal stop for lunch with breathtaking views.
We must have been there the thick end of 2 hours, it was so delightful, if a tad hot. Returning via Oban (hoaching), and down towards Lochgilphead, with Johnny leading. (U know what that means). Thus we lost Eoghainn, but JG caught sight of him in Lochgilphead; the others veered off to Crinan for Ice Creams (if any left)
JG went down The Loch, but the tail back was as far as Luss, on a Monday!
No matter, after overtaking the hunners of vehicles en route to Alexandria, thank Goodness for the alternative route home, via Drymen
