Dalgarven Kilwinning

Tulip at Eglinton

Made it out on the road bike today for a few hours. Over to Dalgarven mill on the hilly quiet route missing the traffic by risking a bit of mud on a farm road link.
There was indeed mud but only for 20yards or so. I just kept the speed down in it and just after in an attempt to stay clean.
At Dalgarven Mill tearoom there was a group of Billy Bilsland cyclist from the south side of Glasgow feeding there faces for the run back up the road into the showers.
I'd noticed the tell tale clouds and had decided to keep south in the sun and headed downhill to Eglinton and Kilwinning.

On the news tonight it was reported a chap from Kilwinning was missing and his wife in hospital after trying to rescue their dogs from the swollen river very sad, I couldn't help but wonder what I was doing at the time it happened. Maybe taking photos at the Abbey, or pottering home over the back roads home. Mmm makes you wonder what tomorrow might bring.

View todays photos here.

I'm not very happy with the slide show header, I'll check it on Anne's laptop and it its rthe same I'll be reverting to the FLICKR one in future.

Its like we all live in a different world each life following a trail leading to random conclusions.
Life goes on though, lives changing lives.
Some people would call it fate or maybe luck unfotunately sometimes bad.
