With no motorbikes cluttering up the foreground and a well washed blue sky overhead – Ballantrae should be at it’s best today.
While on a mission to deliver ‘H’ to the Irish Ferry this morning I was pleased to have the tin roof overhead as the skies blackened and heavens opened on the last few miles to Cairnryan Ferryport.
Tidy package duly delivered and with blue skies overhead again – I couldn’t resist nipping up the coast a few miles to visit the seaside town of Ballantrae.
There isn’t much shelter here throughout the winter months and even today there was a cold nip in the wind despite the brilliant sunshine.
For once I didn’t use up all my shots around the harbour but clocked a few from the old bridge which is now restricted to foot traffic only.
But the old clinker built boat by the harbour did get in on the act – especially when I spotted her name – Margaret.
So I said a wee prayer for our friend Margaret who is currently fighting for her life against the big ‘C’ in a Glasgow hospital.
And here’s a little something for her friends who are vainly doing their best to keep spirits up and help her through this difficult stage.
They know this part of the Ayrshire coastline well.
I hope I’ve brought you all a little sunshine from it to share today —
