18th June 2016
fill car with kit, tetris
away we go in the rain, sun bound
food and toilets, Tesco
pitch the tent, midges
early night, knackered
up and watered, early
waiting to go, ages!
woodland ravine, climbing
up to loch and wooden style, wobble
up the damn and man ladder, progress
sandwich found, squishy
grassy track in sunshine, breeze
col and rest, then go, midges!
rocky direct line scramble, summit
lunch and rest, view
rocky ridgy and fun times, smiles
summit rest and sunbathe, burning
descent and water, yearning
down to loch and tunnel entrance…. another time!
On to signage, 24!
titchy bridge and rust, balance
fern descent and back to car, ticks
bbq and shower time, clean
wine and burgers, party
fire pit and giggles, cartwheels
Late start no midges, happy
ferry to catch and sunshine, running
offroad and summit target, challenge
fast descent and ferms, fun
tea shop and bothy, potty
castle and ramparts, wild camp!!!
Berenice chase the ferry, running
nipple chaffe and sweat, strip
ferry boat and dog, cooling
chocolate shop indulgence, diet
car bound to return, dozing
back for tea, yum.
