    Perfect getaway & so relaxing.

    Had a great time at the party being held at the onsite pub.

    The plan was then to head off on the Wednesday, from Stranraer up the Ayrshire coast, wild overnight at Girvan harbour before arriving to see my parents.
    Tick off the January challenge & collect lots of brownie points from mummy & daddy at the same time - job sorted !!

    Huh - fat chance !!

    Early on Tuesday 2nd i had the most excruciating pain in the tummy - & it would not ease at all.
    Toddled off next door where i very kindly woke Fergie1061 who drove me the 30 miles to A&E at Stranraer.
    Am sure he did not know his old van could reach the speeds that it did on our trip over there !!

    After morphine for pain relief, X-rays & CT scan, they accepted that it was not constipation as first diagnosed, but told me I had a kidney stone !

    i was then given a pain management course to follow with instructions to see my doc on my return home.

    How to get home tho ? I was not allowed to drive due to the meds.
    My neighbour Fergie1061 stepped forward to be the hero of the day.
    He drove me home in his van, then got 2 buses to get back to the site then drove my van back home.
    A true gent in every sense of the word.

    After another hiccup which involved another trip to A&E at Dumfries on Wednesday evening, things are settling down here.
    It's not just time that I am waiting to pass before i plan any more trips now !

    The best laid schemes of mice & men etc !!
    Sorry to hear about your troubles tam,rab,boab,joke apart get well soon mate

    Turns out it's really very beautiful despite the name Parked near Langton Matravers and will probably stay where we are as its somewhere we have never stayed before and I think that was part of the brief. We have a good view of rolling hills. image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

    Although there are signs against it, we stopped over in the car park under the castle for 2 nights in a row there last summer
