Getting to Ayr…

France & Vincent

*

…We had counted on leaving the ferry by six,

and being off the Isle of Skye,

by seven.

*

We were late off the ferry

and did not cross back onto the mainland

until eight.

*

Besides which, having to be somewhere

at a certain time tends to go against the grain

when holidaying, that is work stuff!

*

Normally we have a nebulous plan

which leaves lots of room

for unscheduled stops

when the landscape calls.

*

That particular luxury had been withdrawn.

*

Even though we had only been on the isles

for a couple of days

there was also a lingering notion

that the sun would not set

leaving us enough light to drive through the night.

*

Not so!
