On the road again

Daffodils at Perceton near Irvine

Too nice to squander another day on photo stuff (unless its snaps from the bike) so got out the road bike for a slightly longer outing today a loop over lots of little quiet roads to Dundonald.
Didn't do the full route though I cut a few corners but it took me 5 hours of easy going cycling. With the sun shining its so easy to enjoy a day on the bike I even took a couple of short detours to get extra photos.

Coming back through Ardrossan I noticed the memorial to those lost on HMS Dasher was covered in wreaths, the date of the tragedy was 27March 1943. The ships aero fuel blew up and it sank very quickly in the Clyde just south of Wee Cumbrae.
The whole incident is still clouded in secrecy but those lost are still remembered to this day.
Many of the wreaths had hand written dedications, very touching.
