      Domestic duties. Found a laundry and arranged to collect our washing in 2 hours. Time to look at Robbie Burns' house, where Scotland's national poet lived for many years, with his wife Jean Armour until he died in 1796. Interesting to look at paintings, drawings, poetry, of course, and the furnishings of the little house they lived in. Supposedly the couple were well off, with a maid, in ...

      ... on a beautiful afternoon while Nina and I went for a nice long walk. We were in Portpatrick because it was a cute place that we enjoyed the first time around, and just wanted to putze around a bit and generally relax. It fit the bill perfectly.

The view from the summit was amazing as we could see where we walked from in previous days and where we ...
