Seven brave souls assembled at 9am on the
Waverly terminal for a 10.00am departure. Heading round the Clyde estuary via
Greenock, Largs, Rothesay, Brodick, round the Holy Isle then home in the
reverse order reaching Glasgow at 10.30.pm.
Unlike the previous trip, when we all got sunburnt. The weather this time, was absolutely dismal, but Waverly herself, did not disappoint. With plenty of watering holes to take shelter in, we did the pub crawl till 6pm, then it was time to take our table for pre-booked dinner and then back on deck to soak up more ....... rain, unfortunately.
Still, it was a good day out & I for one, enjoyed the good company.
Sad to say, due to illness, Ian Wilkins, Jim Stevenson, Lachie Stewart and David Whitlock, were unable to join us.
I hope they all make speedy and full recoveries.
Also spare a thought for
James Millar who sadly passed
away a few weeks ago. He was a true gentleman. Eddie used to say, "we
knew we had come to the correct park, when we saw Jim, sitting in "his
chair" at the side of the launch area".
Finally, once again, a big thanks to junior, for stepping up to do the admin for the trip. It's much appreciated by us all, who only have to get there on time.
