We took the campervan to the Crinan Canal yesterday. At various points along the way it felt as if the van was going to get blown off the road. Going in such weather is a great antidote to boredom, but I am not sure it is good for the nerves. The weather varied from howling gale to chucking it down with sheets of water then back to scudding black clouds lightened by occasional glimpses of the sun. Him Behind the Wheel kitted himself up in waterproofs to take Misty for a walk along the canal bank. He refused to take her wearing her new red raincoat. Perhaps that was as well, it could have acted like a sail and she could have ended up in the Dorus Mhor.
The really good thing is returning to a snug home with the central heating on!
