I was gutted to miss this trip Andy.
My mate Tom pulled out on the Thursday with a lingering chest infection but I was still looking forward to it.
On the Friday night I got a phonecall from my laddie Andy, who's a DJ, needing a lift to a kara-oke at a Hen Night in Fauldhouse Miner's Club on the Saturday night. He was going to make just over a hundred quid for an hours work, so I couldn't let him miss out on that.
FF to tea time Saturday "Dad, bad news they've cancelled". Well that was both our weekends goosed.
On the Sunday we walked along the coast from South Queensferry to Abercorn Church, onto Blackness Castle and back via The Binns (Tam Dalziels estate) in a sort of circular route. It was a good day out and almost, almost made up for missing the bivvy and a bevvy down at yours.
That looks another great spot Andy, helluva slope though, how many times did you slip off your sleeping mat?
Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into Jet engines...
What I lack in decorum, I make up for with an absence of tact.
