On the road again…..

It’s been well over a month since we have been out in Lizzie……strange I hear you say, why not spend every minute of the summer away in your motorhome? Well, we are very pleased to announce the birth of our first grandchild, Isaac arrived last week weighing in at 9lbs 3 oz and of course we wanted to be around for this very special occasion and were able to help out with dog-sitting until the new family got settled.

FAR too young to be grandparents I hear you say….yes we agree but we are embracing this stage of our lives with pleasure and joy and Isaac has already captured our hearts. Grandchild no.2 is due to arrive in November so this is turning out to be a very special year!

However, we spotted a window of opportunity to get away from the rain and headed south for a few days on the Mull of Galloway in South West Scotland.

The Mull of Galloway is Scotland’s most southerly point and rewards the visitor with stunning beaches, cliff top walks and amazing views across the water to Ireland. Pretty little harbours  and 6 top class gardens are other attractions.

We spent one day pottering around Stranraer, Portpatrick and finally Port Logan, which was our favourite.

One beach produced an interesting haul of Beach Pottery and Sea Glass. I always wonder where these beautiful little works of art originated?

  1. Lizzie is living up to her brand name as a sunseeker and we have escaped to the sunshine on the most southerly point in Scotland. The wind however is quite strong. But a lovely part of Scotland.
