Thankyou Fish followers. A glorious day-calm sea-dry roads-no wind-warm(ish) sun. Landslip inHawick cleared before
our arrival. Ferry two minutes late (not bad as it started off three minutes late) Club Class well worth the extra ten quid. Smoked salmon and white wine as the sea slipped quietly by at 50 mph. The usual deserted Borders Roads. Great to be back.
One sad note-or actually two. Our usual greasy spoon caff at Langholm mysteriously closed-apparently not yet recovered from the outside loos being demolished by a cross eyed and presumably (later) cross legged lorry driver. The next pit stop the Mosspaul hotel dark and silent so no tea and no carrot cake. So four hours without a cup of tea.
The BBC is promising 80mph mayhem tomorrow. But it may be losing its touch. We were promised blustery showers today but nary a drop of moisture and not even a tiny breeze. My all singing all dancing electronic windguage shows a windspeed of 87.5 mph during our absence. The guage on top of its aliminum pole is looking a bit battered and is at strange angle so it might not be in its right mind. Sort it out tomorrow, if I am spared.
