Downpours in Ayr
Greetings readers worldwide a bit more straightforwards tonight rather than Colombo last Saturday evening we are now in the premier inn at bellshill near Glasgow with a very poor modern version of dr who on television whilst waiting fit casualty. My coat is hung up drying out still after acratherboffbthe mark bbc weather forecast said there might be very scattered showers which turned out to be monsoon rains in Ayr and Glasgow .we didn't set off too early so eventually woke at 6am and then set off up the m6 to arrive in Dumfries just after 9am and found that the local services no longer go around the riverside stops but have a turning circle on the town centre. I was surprised to be greeted by one of our friends from the borders chris baker who had travelled from beattock to meet us. We actually got about 20 minutes of film and had to push on to Ayr where the heavens opened. I got soaked bybthevrakn and by a loony local driver who delighted in laughing through a huge puddle and soaking me on the pavement. There wasn't much variety in Ayr and once again we pushed on tonirvinecehere sunshine now posed the problem but eventually we had an hour of hard early footage and set the sat nav for bellshill and the premier inn. After a wash and freshen up we went to dinner at the slobs hotel nearby which had some nice background music from a quartet and singer but the food and service wasn't up to our last visit but the atmosphere had been great. We had set up at Bridgeton museum in the Late afternoon and then the next lot of monsoon rain came down and we found we wre under several leaks in the roof but thankfully had a waterproof sheet to the stock. The forecast for sundar is good but who knows what will happen .
