January Road Trip (XXVI)

Dress of Wedding White

Delectable curves fill cloth

Sun casts confetti

.

n.b. I witnessed stunning views whilst travelling through the Southern Uplands this morning.

The white hills, dark clouds with Sun breaking through dropping more snow in curtains. A delicate show of light and shade was daubed onto the rounded terrain of south-west Scotland.

I have never seen such a magical snowscape; it was worth every mile driven on this excursion just to experience this today.

January Road Trip (XXII)

Wemyss Bay terminus

For rail, but not yet for us

Rothesay ferry waits

.

n.b. Cared for by the Friends of Wemyss Bay Station, (operated by the local private railway company), this architectural delight, in tune with the main concourse at Glasgow Central, was built to funnel train passengers down to the waterside for the ferries to holiday isles in the west of Scotland. Not so popular destinations now, but the railway station is ready and waiting to serve if called on again.

.

If you get yourself to Wemyss Bay make sure to leave time to nip into The Station Bar. However, the ferry schedule, or sea conditions may give you no option but to hole up for a wee while in the cosy bar, (or adjoining Station Café, or even the second-hand bookshop – when open).

January Road Trip (XV)

A people finds voice

Through poetry, music, art

Identity forms

.

n.b. Burns Night is celebrated worldwide by Scots annually on 25th January.

Appreciating each other’s origins, heritage and culture is healthy.

Saturday 25th January 2020 also happens to be the Chinese New Year this time around.

Neither better, just different. Both fine reasons to have a good night out.
