Saturday in Perth

Hiya, I'm going to skip a day here and post yesterdays photo's another time. There are quite a lot of the Royal Yacht Britannia, which will take ages to post so it's best I do that when I am connected to the mains. So today I have moved on to Perth. I left the hostel at 8.15am and arrived at Perth Racecourse just before ten. I arranged to meet Kate here, one of my readers, and we are going to look round the knitting show. Kate is a keen knitter and is also meeting some people she speaks to on a knitting forum.

This might give you a giggle. My salad leaves are starting to grow and I thought if I leave them behind they are not going to get watered, so why not bring them with me, so here they are in the back of my car. I can water them and eat them as I go along, good idea eh!

I had a stroke of luck while queuing to pay for my entry ticket to the show. A woman approached me and gave me a spare ticket she had, she didn't need it. How fabulous is that, and how kind of her, she definately picked the right person to give it to, ha ha.

Anyway, I've had a lovely day with Kate and her husband Dave, you couldn't meet nicer people. Thank you for the company. There was lots of stands to see, and a fashion show, I think Dave enjoyed it as well.



So where am I sleeping for the night, the camp site right next door to the Racecourse. So convenient, not the cheapest place but it has all the facilities you need, and I did save £6 on the ticket. You can't beat this camping lark, lovely weather, a can of cider, and I have already been chatting with my neighbours who have a lovely little dog. People are so friendly here.



Off to Crianlarich tomorrow.

  2. Glad you are having such a good time. I did laugh at your salad leaves, I did somehting similar myself once :-D
    I have always found people to be friendly when camping, I think theres some kind of "blitz spirit" that comes out when people are away from their home comforts and "making do".
    Looks like you are having great weather too.

  12. Well, I suppose if it's OK to talk to your plants, the next logical step is to take them on a sight-seeing holiday in Scotland. :)

  15. It was really good to meet you at last Ilona, and we did have a giggle - you didn't put on your blog what we had to say to make us smile for the camera (it wasn't cheese!!!!)
    David is pretty shattered, driven 750 miles and been surrounded by women for 48 hours - I just think he is lucky :-) The 'fashion' show was something else LOL Enjoy the rest of your trip x
