What Will We Do Today?
11 June 2018 | Anne and her dad. Wouldn't it be nice if we had a wee boat?
What will we do today?
We've walked around the town. We've climbed up to the castle. We've been back to the town. We've contributed a significant sum to the dentist's new Mercedes fund and finally had to succumb to the "cruiser at home" fallback position......a wander round a marina.
The really strange, but typical thing is that within five miles of where I'm sitting there are about one thousand, five hundred sailboats and stink boats tied up in two of the Clyde's premier marinas. Look out the window and you're lucky if you can see more than half a dozen boats out enjoying the water.
It is absolutely stunning weather here in Scotland. The family are telling me it's like this all the time and we don't know what we're missing. As is The Scottish Tourist Board.
The thing is, we do know what we're missing.
Sleepless nights while the anchor chain grinds away on a rock. A loo you build muscles like Popeye pumping. Living in an area the size of a WalMart bargain size cereal box and all our personal possessions kept in one small cupboard and all at great expense?
Yet, we keep going back to it. There must be a medical solution somewhere.
