... Nearby, there was a good-natured but noisy group of guys who had a lot of empty beer cans in front of them at 0915. In the evening we had a fine dinner with Ray and Loren at the Kilcreggan Hotel. We leave tomorrow afternoon for Heathrow, overnight there then fly to Bangkok on Monday. We have a full day connection in Bangkok - 0600 to 2345. Royal Thai have booked us a room at the airport Novotel, and we may train in to the MBK ...

We had a fine meal and a good chat with the staff who ...

We followed the west coast to Luskentyre Sands. What a surprise to see white sand and sun when ...
The rain from last night was still persisting this morning as we set off for Scotland, and the temperature did not get above 13 deg. all day. As we drove north on the A595 to Carlisle the rain became heavier and by the time we entered Scotland at Gretna Green on the M6 it was bucketing down and there were illuminated signs warning of heavy rain and flooding all along the motorway. Welcome to Scotland!
With visibility so poor we could not make out a lot of the scenery ...
