Awoke this morning after another night of rain. Was the trip on the Falkirk wheel to be a washout then? But no. By 9am the sun was out so waterproofs packed away for another day, jumpers on 'cos it was a tad chilly and by 9 40 we had somehow managed to be first in line to get the prime seats...right at the front.
|Behind us sat a Dutch family with a great sense of humour.|
|This is what should have been taken.|
Next plan was to head for Fort William with an overnight stop at Glen Coe. On route, we spied a waterfall to go and see. As lead motorhome, we turned into the car park and ...oh dear...two motorhomes already parked, a tiny car park and what seemed an impossibility to turn around!
Ian tried and failed but he was right at the very end. There was not enough room behind to swing the rear end and what with that motorhome in front! Kev was further back at a wider bit and with multiple turns managed to get around. With the Beast, a bit smaller Ian managed to mirror Kevs manoeuvring and with a sigh of relief that no reversing back into a busy main road was necessary, continued on our journey with Kevs "Stop trying to see waterfalls and getting us stuck in carparks" ringing in our ears.
The weather turned nasty and all we could see of this beautiful part of the Highlands was mist and drizzle. Plenty of places to stop except for one small problem. They were either full of water or full of cars! So onwards to a place called Corran and a place at a pub we knew we could park at. but unbeknown to us, a trip across the Ferry was necessary!!
Kev managed to get onto the first ferry leaving us behind. Hmm, how do we catch them up from here? but we needn't have worried as the Inn at Ardgour pub was opposite where the ferry docked. Such a nice publican to let us stay the night although we did have to move as far back as possible to free up car parking space.
|Bye bye Kev|
|Not sure we can open our door.|
I am sitting here in the Beast and watching the ferry fill up with car after car and queues stretching back for miles Apparently there has been a huge accident close by closing the road completely and the only way for commuters to get home is via the ferry. At £8.50 a trip the company must be raking it in!
|And yes it is still raining.|
And this I found amusing
|The only way to travel on a motorbike.|
And finally some wildlife!
