Long Drive through the night to Ayr!

I left the Deep South at 0330 to get to Ayr to visit my sister and watch my local Team Ayr United play East Fife!I was visiting my Grandkids and have been away for two weeks.I find it is s so hard being so far away and easier to leave in the night to save a bit of upset for me !

I get asked why I drive at night but I much prefer it, the roads are a bit easier as there is not so much traffic but it is a long way to Ayr. There are a few road works especially on the M6.


I stopped twice for a break and I was in Ayr after 1015. The weather was great but no views of Arran as yet . I have time for a wash,change of clothes and a cat nap then head off to the game.I am staying the night in Prestwick with my sister then back up North. It has been a busy two weeks away .
