Wednesday 20th February
We casually split into three groups, after all we're not married to each other!
Group 1 - The Walkers
Jennifer, Bernie and I walk along the old track from the house leading to Monreith and towards the sea. It's raining, but the odd break in the cloud gives us a view of distant mountains covered in snow.
There are large clumps of snowdrops. Carpets of snowdrops seems a clichéd but accurate description.
We are enticed back to the Monreith Arms Hotel. Good Food!
We eat at the bar - joined by the locals and the landlord.
Group 2 - The Drivers
Laura and Andrew and Sprog drive around the coast and hug a few stones. They visit Wigtown which has an excessive number of book shops.
Group 3 - The Chillers
Rick and Gavin play Risk, backgammon and DVD's, and generally chill.
We all meet up by late afternoon. Rick and Bernie play radios. The aerial is moved to a better position. This is the only way to communicate with friends at home that works reliably!
We all get together for our evening meal. The left over curry has become nice and thick. Warmed up leftovers! We don't care!
