Merry Christmas

The weather here in Scotland is truly Christmas like; earth hard as iron, water truly stoney and snow heaped on snow. However, the sky is clear blue, we have a lovely view across the Clyde from Troon towards Arran and it's magnificent mountains. A house filled with children's laughter and happiness, floors littered with paper wrappings...all is good in the world.

So, merry Christmas to all of you who check in here so often, thanks for your comments this year, may you and yours have an excellent Christmas and, while you tuck into your Turkey, spare a thought for those crews and other emergency services around the country who, like Torbay already, will leave their warm homes to help others this cold Christmas day.

Gaudete, gaudete! Christus est natus
Ex Maria virgine, gaudete!

That photo leapt out of the page and rattled a few memories. I lived in Troon as a young lad and my aunt and uncle had a house on South Beach (no.62) which must be just along from where your photo was taken. Wicked views across to Arran and Ailsa Craig. Spent some exclellent times on the beach and playing in the sand dunes and racing our home made go-cart along the esplanade.
Sounds like you had a great time even if you did not manage to get out in the kayak.
