Der erste Fasan. Und. Natürlich geht er nicht weg. Eine röhrende V6 Limousine kommt mit 80km/h auf ihn zu aber er starrt uns einfach an. Wartet, bis wir stehen, und stolziert davon.
Another fine day in Sanquhar in Dumfries and Galloway at the Nithsdale Hotel. A full cooked breakfast is bacon, sausage(s), fried egg(s), tomato, mushroom, black pudding, fried bread, and toast. In England.they add baked beans and hash browns. In Ireland they add white pudding. In Scotland they may offer minced haggis in the shape of a black or white pudding. Sausages are better in Ireland than in Great Britain. Main road to Glasgow was closed without any diversion directions. The couple living adjacent to the closed highway told me the route around the road closure, an extra scenic 23 miles. There were sheep and at least 50 school aged children with weekend packs plus the odd semitrailer thrown into the mix. After just under three hours later we arrived at the Electric Brae Stone. Took the photo then searched for the optical illusion. Yvonne spotted the uphill appearance which is a blind bend, so too dangerous to roll a car backwards to prove the illusion. Drove on to Dean Castle Kilmarnock East Ayrshire located in a lovely park. Photographed deer lying down in the heat (23.5 degrees on the car thermometer) as well as the Castle. Teenage boys were jumping into a creek pool. We next drove to South Glasgow and our accommodation at Redhurst Hotel. Then caught the train into Glasgow and wandered around. Looked at George Square used for Outlander scene where Frank proposes to Claire at the end of WWII. Love the Scottish sense of humour the plaque commentating Queen Victoria’s visit in 1849 is positioned beneath the horse’s arse of the statue of the Queen on horseback. Thundery rain shower mainly while we were in a shop. Dinner in a Weatherspoon Hotel with a similar menu to the one in Brecon Wales. Packed return train with young people probably going to a concert.Read more
Omdat het nog altijd wat miezert (heel wat anders dan in NL), nemen we een uitgebreide lunch in de Cochrane Inn in Gateshead. Van buiten oubollig, van binnen modern gerestyled volgens Schotse normen. Smaken verschillen 😆!Read more
Great park with new friend and granny and papa.
A rather wet day out.
