Well this was a wee last minute plan.
It looks like it’s going to be a lovely weekend so I thought I’d get away for an overnight in Abbie the camper van and oor Craigie said that he will cope and try not to be too sad and lonely without me #craigiehasanempty 🤣
I feel like I’ve not made good use of the van this year so really fancied a quiet night away in the sunshine so I’ve come to South Whittlieburn Farm just north of Largs, on the west coast of Scotland. It’s only 30 minutes from the house but a change of scenery and the fresh air, will do me good.
That said…. On checking in, I was told it likely to be pretty noisy tonight as they’re full…. I said I was having a wee quiet night away on my own and she grimaced and said “oooh I think you’ll be lucky….” 😳
That’ll be me later trying to shut everyone up!
So I’m up against a hedge hiding so I can pretend I’m up here all alone. I’ve wanted to try this site for a while. Sadly there no sign of the sea and I guess it’s just not really what I expected. At the moment it’s quieter in our own back garden with the pub beer garden full next door!!
There are workmen rough casting the main house so a fair bit of the noise is down to them at the moment.
I have my own gate 🤣🤣🤣
This is where social media can give you a false impression…. You can’t see all the other campers from my photos… just showing you the solitude…. 😆
So I was up at 5, worked very hard at the Fit Body Farm. It was the same as last week, the interval training killer session! There were only 7 of us so I quite like a wee quiet class.
Back home and out a walk with Bhruic and Freya first then back home to meet Holly (next door) and Leo and the second walk of the day. All this done by 10am.
Its 1pm now and I’ve done 14,224 steps already!
Should say here that the kennel cough pups are not too bad. Calaidh’s seems to have passed and Freya only has a slight cough now. Bhruic seems to have missed out which is good.
Craig was working in Greenock this morning so is going to drive past the campsite and we’ll head into Largs for lunch.
There’s no signal here so I will post this when out for lunch.
I have my crochet and a good book. I’ll be fine!
My blanket’s coming along really well though god knows where all these crochet things are going to go!! Our house is festooned with crochet blankets these days. I really do not live life in the fast lane these days. 😊🤣
We’ve come to Bueno Onda in Largs for food. We’re sitting outside with a view of the sea and it feels very cosmopolitan.
The menu is tapas and while service was pretty slow, the food was really good.
Highly recommended if you have the time to chill and watch the world go by.
Craig will drop me off back at the campsite and head home.
It’s been a lovely day so far!
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
