On Sunday the sun looked like it was going to shine so we took a trip to Edinburgh to see an exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and then have a walk in the Royal Botanic Gardens. It was great to have the chance to enjoy a bit of sunshine and fresh air.
On Saturday after I finished work we drove up to the west coast for a couple of nights away.
It had all been carefully planned out. All I had to do was get in the car. Amazing how a couple of days can feel so much longer.
We tried a couple of great Scottish gins, ate wonderful seafood dinners and hotel breakfasts, stopped for tea and scones, coffee and cake, drank champagne, saw beautiful scenery. It was the perfect break.
On Sunday we decided to go for ice cream and to Nardini's in Largs. It was sunny when we left for the coast but as you can see the usual thing happened and it clouded over a bit.
I first went to Nardini's years ago in my final year at art school. I was having a carpet made by a manufacturer in Kilwinning and as it wasn't far we took a trip to seek out the famous ice cream place.
I am one of those people who prefer things to stay as they used to be. I
love the faded glamour. Nardidi's has had a
major makeover and thankfully the ice cream is still wonderful.

This picture pretty much sums up my game. My ball is the pink one.
