Too tired to think…

France & Vincent

*

…Four hours later,

the rain stopped and we

re-hit the road.

*

The deflating tyre which had plagued us

again and again,

the whole trip, was worsening

and meant it was too risky to use any motorways.

*

But the art of the lay-by was not strained.

We pulled into another one

just outside Dumfries.

*

This lay-by held the boon of sleep,

and a resolution.

*

On awakening we found a garage

and got the tyre changed.

*

Strange to say,

it was the first opportunity to do so

since Penrith.

*

“How different would things have

been had that first garage changed the tyre back then?”
