YES, sun, sun and more sun, incredible!
Here I am in very bonny and very sunny Scotland ~ yippee! Just been visiting my good friend Elizabeth who’s now starting her second retirement ~ in the most beautiful place ever, West Kilbride. I’d originally kinda assumed it must be near East Kilbride ~ but no, it’s way out west, 40 miles SW of Glasgow, right on the west coast with spectacular views of the mountains on the Isle of Arran and all up the Firth of Clyde….
Elizabeth was a tutor at the CMS Training College, Crowther Hall, in the Selly Oak Colleges, Birmingham, having been many years with CMS in Nigeria, and now here she is in her brand new place, a must-visit location! There’s even driftwood scarecrows along the beach..
And a visit to the most famous building in Millport on Cumbrae, the smallest cathedral in Britain, The Cathedral of the Isles ~ they even have a link with Zanzibar….
Cumbrae is a stunning place, and on a sunny day – fantastic views too…. well worth a visit, even for the boat trip alone!
Then to Portencross Castle, near West Kilbride – after all can’t come to Scotland and not see a castle or two – this one is where the bodies of former Scottish kings were ferried off to be buried on Iona… it just so looks like a real castle!
Then a sunset from Elizabeth’s front doorstep to finish the day….
Imagine having views like this from your kitchen window – wow!
Thanks Elizabeth for a great few days, WONDERFUL!
