Our Sunday Trip

This afternoon Karen and I took a trip down the coast to Largs.  It is about a half hours drive from home. I took some pictures but they are very poor I'm afraid the weather was drizzly and very grey.

You can catch a ferry from Largs over to the Isle of Cumbrae, also called Millport, which is a lovely little island about 22 miles all around. The ferry journey only takes about half and hour. We didn't go over to Millport today but I did take a picture of the ferry,

You can see that the weather wasn't too good. When we arrived it was just drizzly and a bit cold.
 


 There is a yacht club at Largs and there were lots of boats out, I was amazed how many.


 We decided to nip into Nardini's cafe (famous around here for their ice-cream) for something to eat for lunch.


It was really busy and is a really lovely place. There was even a pianist sitting at a grand piano playing music. Very civilized.  Guess what Karen had - yup you guessed it chips. But guess what - even worse - I had chips as well. But you know what - they were the best chips I have had in a long time. Not only that but I had apple pie and cream, yummy. Karen had a piece of millionaire's shortbread which she says was equally yummy.  Suitably stuffed we decided to leave but when we left it was raining really heavily. So didn't take too many more pictures. By the time we got back to the car my hair was sticking to my head. Not the most attractive I have every been lol.

Anyway, while I was dripping - I mean driving - home we passed this little spot. Isn't is beautiful, you wouldn't know it was raining. So I had to stop and pull in and take the picture. But as I stepped out of the car I stood in a very deep puddle. So now not only did I have a lovely hairdo but also a VERY wet foot. 
 We decided to call it a day and go home. But we did have a lovely afternoon.

I think it's very romantic to be out of doors on a rainy day.... Your photos capture the mood of the day perfectly.

Nardini's sounds a great place to go on a wet drizzly day! Great photos considering the day! Entertained as well! What decadence!

I so love that third shot down!

Who cares if our hair sticks to our head...as long as we get a few good shots.

Oh I truly enjoyed taking this trip with you. I was a little disappointed I did not feel the hair stuck to my head and my foot being wet. I love the photos and the last one is especially nice. B

I haven't been there since I was a child when we spent part of our summer holidays in Ayr. I agree that last shot is beautiful.
