After my soaking on Sunday at the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride I was keen for a more pleasant run. The weatherman could offer dry and warm(ish) weather but no sun. This is something you have to accepted when you live in one of the cloudiest places on earth. I headed southwest.
|Girvan Harbour - well, it started off bright|
|The coast road|
|Ballantrae (and the sun is still shining)|
|Misty in Port William|
|Fisherman statue surveys the sea in Port William|
|Lobster pots in Port William|
|Gloomy Isle of Whithorn|
|SV at Garlieston|
|On a lighter note there is a memorial to a man who died in 1846. It states that he was "Removed in the midst of his usefulness" It shows how language changes over the years. Also the stern warning "Reader, be ye also ready".|
So, despite the dull conditions, it was a nice day out. At this time of year I try to ride when I can because I know there is a lot of crappy weather ahead.
