Three boats back home

Three boats back home

Today we are going home and are booked on the afternoon ferry from Arran to Ardrossan. Sounds easy but to get to Brodic Betsy has to catch two other ferries. To make sure we get there in time Betsy went to que early. So early we had breky while we were on the slip way. Dad got out with the dishes and went back to camp to wash them. Still we had pleany of time so I went out for a last walk along the bay.

On the other side Betsy was making good time until we came on to the wee road that takes us to Claonaig to get the next ferry to Lochranza. It was a bit slower but yet again we were the first in the que.

Loads of time to spare time for a wee plod along the beach.

It wasn’t long before we were half way across and saw dark and cloudy Lochranza.

Betsy was of first and started to speed her way to Brodick. When we got there we could take our time going to the Ferry terminal. Betsy was the last to be loaded onto the ferry. When we got on the doggie area was very busy. Dad took me outside for some fresh air. Dad I can see Ardrossan, we will be home soon. This was a good adventure.
