Charity Walk

Well we made it! Despite some pretty atrocious weather conditions.
As we got down to catch the ferry we watched in resignation as the clouds and rain swept in and the Isle of Cumbrae disappeared into the mist!

The first hour or so of walking was not particularly pleasant with rain and wind but we stopped for lunch at Fintry Bay (it didn't look like that yesterday!) and managed to dry out a bit.

Wet and bedraggled at Fintry Bay L-R: Dot, Alison, Louise, Lynn, Me!

Alison and I have to put our wet T-shirts back on (no jokes about wet T-shirt competitions please!)

The second leg of the walk took us round into Millport where we were welcomed by a free cup of tea/coffee and some home-baking provided by the event sponsors! and Alison who joined us in the walk through the town. We made its far as Bobby's bar where we stopped for light refreshments (ie pear cider) before making our way on the last leg of the walk back round to the ferry terminal.

We finished about 5 hours after we started but we reckon we were actually walking for about 3 1/2 hours of that which given the weather conditions wasn't too bad.

L-R: Alison, Dot, Louise, me, Lynn

Once again thank you to all of you who supported me. It really is very much appreciated! Thanks guys!
