Day 922 day out on the PS Waverley, the world’s last sea going paddle steamer 🚢 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

So we have a wee “village” day trip to Largs to pick up the PS Waverley and cruise over to Rothesay on Bute, then to Tighnabruaich then down to Scaplsie Bay and Inchmarnock on the west coast of the Isle of Bute and back the way we can I believe. It’s been a rough week weather wise but we seem to be lucky enough to have a wee window of calm and sunshine this afternoon…. Fingers crossed.

This is the last sailing of the 2022 season. It’s the first full season she has sailed since 2018.

We have a minibus picking us up at 11am at the Gateside inn to take us to Largs where we board the PS Waverley at 12.45.

I hardly slept at all last night which is more likely down to a large Indian meal last night….. oops… but I’m raring to go. Here’s some info on the ship from the Waverley Excursions website.

Oh wow. I have had THE best day!! I have a gazillion photos to sort through. I’ve been out on deck all day. It’s 6.30pm and we’ve just left Largs in our minibus home.

I will post some photos just now and then write it up properly tomorrow when I have more time.

Wow, wow, wow and wow. I thoroughly recommend the Waverley in 2023.

The best day out with a great group of people.

Stay safe everyone 🚢🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿♥️
