Sunday Pub Lunch

Sunday 6th May 2012

We set off with the hoods down and skirted the rain clouds all the way up the side of Loch Lomond until we reached the Village Inn on the shore of Loch Long.

As we all gathered in the car park meeting new and old friends the heavens opened so we quickly entered the Inn. On entry we received a warm welcome and were seated at a long table where the chatting began.

A round of applause was displayed and a show of the funny hats when Gordon and Sue arrived.  It was good to see them after their 3 months travelling experience in the Far East. Gordon put on one of his many hats he bought on holiday. You can just guess what the comments were from Jim & Wattie.


After our lovely meal we said our goodbyes to Sue & Gordon and our new friends Jim & Mary who were staying in a local B&B. The rest of us went on a run Gavin leading down the A814 then we turn up following the road for Glen Douglas. What a fantastic MX5 style road. We met lots of sheep and Highland Coos. We then went onto the A82 [The Old Military Road] where we came upon Gordon & Sue who were having car trouble. Wattie Janet  Jim & I stopped and Gavin continued to lead the run. After we all looked under the bonnet and gave lots of silly advice we then set off to join the rest of the group.  By the time we met up with the group Pamela & Steven, Rosie & Frank, Angus, Alan and Suzanne had continued on their way home on the West. We travelled down to Stirling then parted with Gordon & Sue [who made it home safely] then David, Gavin and  Wattie & Janet  on various sections of the motorway.

It was a lovely day out and we hope that Jim & Mary will join us on a run in the near future.

Hope to see you all soon
