The Ride - Day 8 (16th May '06)

Better day today, rain held off and scenery was excellent. We headed from Kilmarnock to Inverary, a total distance of 77 miles and averaged 16.6mph for the day. Left Kilmarnock and followed A78 to the coast which was quite busy but soon found the roads quietened down and the weather improved. We arrived in Gourock where we took the short ferry crossing across the Firth of Clyde to Dunoon. Here we watched porpoises in the firth and someone claimed to see a seal. Once the other side we lunched at Benmore Botanical Gardens. The afternoon took us along the banks of Loch Fyne with its famous oyster beds to Inverary. The Argyll Hotel was very pleasant and the evening was concluded with a few games of pool and some selections on the jukebox.

Any Northern Soul on that Jukebox Steve. You know I'll pay a good price for any rare records that you come across whilst you are spinning around on that old bike of yours.
If you could just keep an eye out as I think there are bound to loads of yet undiscovered rarities in some of those remote places you keep on banging on about.
