I’m happy to report to the golfers out there, my score did improve on the second day. 36 points! With John’s 39, the match against Bill and John’s mate, Ross, finished on the 13th! That was before Billy’s chipping lesson - things might be different next time.
We booked in to the Mandarin Restaurant Motherwell for dinner. A favourite haunt of John & Betty’s. Unbeknownst to us, the 2018 OVO Energy Series was also in Motherwell. This cycling tour has ten stages at various locations throughout Scotland. This was Stage 2. All the main streets were blocked off. After several U turns and many tight squeezes, we found somewhere to park and hoofed it to the restaurant in time to see the start of the men’s race right out front. The manager of the restaurant then told us it was closed due to the race! The look on our faces must have been priceless until we realised we were being pranked by Frankie, John’s mate! The food was as delicious as John promised it would be.
Next day, after a late breakfast, we caught the bus into Glasgow. Beautiful sunshine again today! It was wonderful to see Glasgow through
The Duke of Wellington
Authorities gave up removing the ‘hat’.
John’s eyes. The Duke of Wellington wearing his traffic cone hat (Glaswegian humour); University of Strathclyde; stunning murals done by graffiti artists; the Glasgow Cathedral; George’s Square to name a few.
