Largs, Scotland – Part 1
Yippee! At long last I have my precious Mac back and can rejoin the blogging world! Five weeks of withdrawal symptoms including cold sweats, the shakes and typing on any surface I could get my fingers on (only kidding)! Anyway, I am very glad to be back and I thought I had better publish a post immediately, because we are just about to leave for a week’s holiday in our Motorhome! We are not going too far away – just to Largs on the Firth of Clyde, on the west coast of Scotland.
When I was a lad in the late 1950s, most families in Scotland still spent their holidays ‘in-country’ so to speak, and in Glasgow, only the wealthiest families owned a car! The rest of us had to pile onto buses or steam trains which took us the short distance down the Clyde Coast to places like Blackwaterfoot on the Isle of Arran, Rothsay, Ayr, Prestwick, Girvan and Largs. For children like myself, who only ever left the city for two weeks summer holiday each year, these places were like wonderland – sun, sea and sand – buckets and spades – new friends and lots of fun! I still love visiting when I can! One of our very favourite things to do when we are in Largs, and this time will be no exception, is to go down to the waterfront and buy hot, newly made, sugar ring doughnuts to die for! Yum! Yum! So, with the holiday in mind, I thought that you might like to see where we are going, so here are a few photographs from Largs! I hope you like them!
Over the last couple of weeks the weather in the UK has been gorgeous, with clear blue skies and continual sunshine! Poor Penny, my other half, has had to go to work while I enjoyed the garden and walking around Ripon! Ah, the advantages of early retirement! Unfortunately, the forecast for next week is cloud, rain and snow! I wonder if I will get many photographs? Who knows? No matter what, we will have a great time and have lots of fun, ’cause that’s what holidays are all about! Hope you liked the photographs! Thanks for visiting my blog!
