Frosty moor route

Ice at the secret waterfall

It was marvelous on the bike yesterday along scary Glentane route to Fairlie was ice and frost not a drop of mud to be found. Graham and I had a great outing the sun even shone for a bit to give us some photo opportunities. I was a bit like a bike video outing Graham had his video camera with him as well as his stills camera and I was shooting headcam stuff. All the stopping and starting meant we didn't sweat up much, a good thing in the cold weather as it can lead to chilling.
Graham suggested visiting the 'secret' waterfall near Fairlie glad we did, it was plastered with ice. The overhanging branches were covered in frozen waterspray really lovely.
PM Anne and I took a walk in Eglinton after dropping my son off at Kilwinning station, he was off to Glasgow to meet a lady friend to shop (poor boy). By that time what sunshine there was had gone and it was very cold indeed, we didn't linger, once round the loch and that was us ready for a warm up in the car.
