Sunday 26th May 2019.
It was a rough night last night, I was suffering badly from hay fever that woke me numerous times during the night, not a normal time of day for me to suffer, and it rained heavily on and off all night, drumming on the roof of Homer.
So it was with relief we set off in the dry this morning and headed to Gatehouse of Fleet, not a very large place, but non the less pleasant. We enjoyed a walk around looking at some interesting buildings and visiting a craft centre in a mill.
We drove on from there to Newtown Stuart where had lunch in Homer after a walk around the town, there’s not a lot open as it is a Sunday and a Bank Holiday, the supermarket was, so I purchased a few beers for this evening.
We took the decision to drive from there straight to the campsite where we have been allocated two pitches on the edge of the site, right on the cliff tops over looking the sea and Dunskey Castle. We found a path down to the little cove below us and Layla had a good time in the sea.
Tea tonight was lamb shanks purchased from Aldi, cooked in the Remoska and accompanied by potatoes, peas and boiled onions, very civilised.
After tea we went for a short walk with Alison and Peter and looked at the ruined castle peering over the cliffs at the sea below, its very windy so I hope we are still here in the morning, at least the wind is blowing inland.
