Too windy to paddle

Must get the laser dinghy fixed, the mast step needs reglassed in. As I drove 200 miles in two days, without paddling, crawling along the A9, trucks overtaking me when I was cruising at 50mph, with the boat on the roof in the gusts.

However, you can't beat a scots history day. So visited the Leonardo Sketches at the Smiths muesum at the City of Stirling. Ironic as they are owned by the Queen, Elizabeth the first of Scotland. The local church is the only surviving church still standing with, Westmintser's, that has coronated Royalty.

The battle site, behind me was where Robert the Bruce rasied the standard of the Scots Army.
