An unlucky day

Hunted the net this morning for cheaper energy then got on the MTB for a local ride, only got 500m before I had to repair a puncture, a long sliver of wire a bit like a big staple.
Two minutes after setting off again a collie was biting at my foot as usual the owner had no control but fortunately the dog wasn't too serious about it or it could have got a hold of my leg rether than my boot.
Had a lovely bit of wind assistance along the beach, and a nice cooling breeze up Goldenberry, played about a bit on Goldenberry then got another puncture at the bottom.
The tyres was really grotty so it wasn't much fun at all repairing it and had used the spare tube on the first puncture so had to do a patch job second time.
Continued up Fairlie moor into a head on breeze making the climb even tougher than normal so just did the lower downhill and then back home.

Some local summer pictures here.

PS Lovely evening so nipped out on the MTB up Law Hill to look at the village lights, then down the Glen and along the beach. I was tempted to go up Goldenberry but decided to quit while I was enjoying it.

Boy, sounds like a bit of a nightmare, but at least you got out, it was dull, wet and miserable down here

Wasn't much better up here, but rain stayed off till about 3pm.
Doesn't look better for the next few days, guess I'll be staying local.
The back up is revarnishing a nest of tables, done one so far after the cycle today.
