A cycle after a busy day. Bruce’s well in Prestwick looking tired and neglected.

I managed a cycle yesterday from Prestwick into Ayr along the cycle track. It was not far about 10 Miles’s round trip. It takes you along the beach past the golf course and near the Port of Ayr. This is an heavily industrial area sadly lots of litter and rubbish about. There was a bit of a wind as well but it was a good break.

The weather varied from dark skies to a warm day and I caught the odd shower. I saw this on a Board at Prestwick.

“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 your taking”

One of the places I passed was Bruce’s well a Historical point of interest looking pretty neglected in Prestwick with rubbish and the rusty railings making it look very neglected. Sad to see! Maybe someone will do something about it as it’s a Council sign that describes this Historical well.

“One of the “claims to fame” is the Bruces Well as Robert the Bruce visited Prestwick and rested on the site of a hospital and the walls of the old hospital are still there today.”

It was a good hour out and I needed that maybe I will get time to get out today.
