The Isle of Cumbrae is absolutely choc-full of curious little points of interest.
There is a sunken WWII catalina Flying Boat, a massive Rock formation which looks like a Lion, a “mouse” rock, a secret tunnel, the “haunted”
pier, hidden caves, standing stone, a ghost-lady, bronze-age burial grounds, and loads more! But next stop on the Cycle tour was the Indian Face Rock,
so that Jane could check out the energies and potential lay lines there.
The weather was still scorching! And - suitably refreshed by our coffee and cakes, the short bike ride to our destination was despatched in rapid
Jane spent a few quiet moments, contemplating the scene, then dowsed for a bit, before taking a stroll along the beach mumbling incantations and
generally being very spiritual!
Since everyone had enjoyed the easy cycling up to this point, and we were already more than 1/3 of the way around the Island anyway, it was decided
unanimously that we would carry on, to complete our 10.25 mile circumnavigation!
I must say that I thought everyone did brilliantly on the bikes, especially Tsu, who hadn’t cycled more than a few feet in more years than she cared
It seems to be one of those things that you never forget how to do, like...... riding a bike really!!! LOL
We completed our circuit of the Island, the LONG way round too!! (Local joke!) and returned to the flat to find Cody relaxing by the door, arms sore
from waving at green-shirted passers by!!
Then, normal service was resumed at the “Ocean Bar” for the remainder of the afternoon.
It was then that we noticed a curious little wooly fella, who’s name turned out to be “Bryn” (or “Fluffy” depending who you ask).
He had apparently been following us the whole weekend!! And no one even noticed!
He is a bit of an adventurer and likes to travel and meet interesting people.
So, he had spotted Tsu at Cardiff airport and decided to tag along to see where his adventures would lead him, and here he was with the Rainbow Shed
crew in the Ocean Bar!
Of course, we all loved him straight away, so Jane inducted him into our merry band, and she even presented him with his own magic wand! Made from
some of Cumbrae’s very special drift wood.
PS – Did you know that the Queens Commonwealth Games Baton, which is currently touring the globe prior to the Glasgow Games, is made from Elm wood
FROM MILLPORT on the Isle of Cumbrae!! (Not 100 metres from the Ocean bar!!)
(I told you that Cumbrae is full of curious little points of interest!)
