Well we survived the windy night and Homer hadn’t moved overnight in spite of us rocking somewhat in the gusts of wind, which was a relief.
After exchanging cards over coffee we walked down into Portpatrick along what was once upon a time a single track railway line, very little has changed since we were last here 10 years ago, that in itself was quite pleasing.
The harbour area is still picturesque and attractive.
The hotel we stayed in looks the same.
We enjoyed the walk around the harbour chatting about our memories and Michelle bought a small stone statue of a hare to go with the two ducks we bought 10 years ago, a quick coffee fortified us for the walk back up the hill to Homer.
The weather this afternoon was showery so I spent my time reading, in between the showers Michelle did venture out for a walk with Layla further along the coast. We had a table booked for a meal at 7.30pm at the the Waterfront Hotel where we spent our honeymoon and so accompanied by Alison, Peter and Layla ( who was spoiled rotten by the waitresses) we had an enjoyable evening, good food and drinks, and a night cap when we got back.
For us Portpatrick will always hold a special place in our hearts and I’m sure we will be back before long.
