Bernie Bell (small bear) and Mike go on a road trip
Saturday 6th May continued – Head north on coast road, through Wick to John O’Groats, which is lovely in the sunshine.
Bernie & biker lady use Gents whilst Ladies is being cleaned, with McB and biker man on guard! Biker couple are from Blackpool and are part of a group doing the North 500 – had ridden from Fort William that day. Nice young woman takes a photo of us under the finger-post pointing to New York, Land’s End, and ….Orkney!
Chat with elderly couple from Thurso, who are keen on archaeology and are following the dig at the Ness of Brodgar.
Take photos for a group of divers who have just emerged from the harbour. Then head west for Scrabster. Dinner on ferry, then HOME!!! HURRAH! All well, except for the courgette which McB planted before departure (BB – planting in hope!) which had succumbed to the snow, north wind and hot sunshine while we were away. Cup of tea, then to our own bed – bliss!!!
