Had a good trip yesterday, the majority of it was on the A75 which is dual carriageway, unfortunately using local roads would have taken far too long. The road was fairly quiet but as the altitude increased so did the thickness of fog which we were in for about 30 miles then we were back in brilliant sunshine.

As was his life the house is very different with 2 large white egg shapes and 2 silver head shapes extending from the roof of his home, which layered down onto a secluded beach - bliss!
