Blue Skies and a blazing sun kept us company all day as we sped up to Scotland. We diverted briefly to the Lake District for coffee with Judy and Andy at their wonderful house above Grange over Sands. On a clear day they can see the summit of Snowdon, nearly 100 miles away, from their living room.
Then we lunched in the company of Tebay's greedy mallards and gulls, before continuing in the heat past comatose cows and siesta loving sheep along the increasingly quiet motorway.
Bright yellow gorse and even brighter rape were our companions for the latter part of the journey.
The Little Mermaid provided an excellent fish supper whilst Old + St Andrews Church glistened in the evening sun behind the Guildhall, which dates from 1763.
Then we enjoyed a stroll on the beach in the evening sun, before adjourning to Alison's immaculate flat in Bents Road and the comfort of her excellent Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
Well, we've reached Montrose. Where next?
