Cycling – a great quote ! Mink in Ayr ?

My sister and I were walking along Prestwick Esplanade when I saw this sign:

“When the spirits are low when the day appears dark when the work becomes monotonous when Hope seems hardly worth having just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road without a thought on anything but the ride you are taking ”

The sign at Prestwick.

The public tennis courts at Ayr I played every day when young for a 2/6 season ticket just outside where I lived and the Old Fort where we played !

Enjoying the visit to Ayr to see my brother who is home from Bermuda with his wife Fay for a holiday. I was Walking with my sister down Prestwick beach and this sign was next to a bike notice board with all the equipment attached to help sort out a breakdown. Great to see so many out and made even better by a sea gull that dropped s deposit on my head!

It is supposed to be lucky !

Views of Arran my favourite place .

Today in Ayr I was walking over the Old Bridge when I saw three mink trying to drag a young dead seagull into a hole it was incredible to see and this was at a busy part of Ayr.

Not a great photo of what I think is a Mink at the river Ayr. Lots watching them trying to drag a seagull into a hole!

Tomorrow I have a busy day going to the Borders to visit a mate recovering from an operation.

Health is wealth indeed.

The weather is great and I am very busy but enjoyed the day on the hills yesterday and needed it after a hard time in Lockerbie doing a tv interview. Yet the replies I got from the local people of Lockerbie to my blog was humbling. It was worth the effort and I needed as always a few days to unwind and the day on the Galloway hills was healing in many ways.

The magic of Galloway Loch Dungeon. The hills and wild places are great medicine.
