Vacation 2017:


I was born in Largs in North Ayrshire. Very happy to be here on vacation with the family.

We had a couple of nights in an AirBnB in Cunningham Drive, Largs. Very nice. On Sunday evening, we walked round the part of town in which I was born and brought up. Visited the house in which I was raised, the school and other haunts.

On Monday, we climbed the hill at Douglas Park. Perfect Weather. As good as California. In the afternoon we went to visit my cousin and her husband. Monday Evening, we walked round "The Pencil", the Monument to the Battle of Largs which as fought in 1263. The Vikings were defeated and left Scotland.

The Paddle Steamer Waverley has been moored at Largs Pier since we arrived. We were planning to sail on her on Wednesday in Loch Fyne. I doubt if she will be sailing. There's a storm heading in from the Atlantic and it will be very wet on Wednesday morning. Oh well, there will be another time. Perhaps on the River Thames in September.
