Aug 26, 2013 - Stranraer

Yesterday we drove from Oban to stranraer. It was a different place but we found a nice B&B and then went to the local pub for a nice meal. Met some locals and then played trivia - we were pretty bad at it as we didn't know too much if the local trivia. Had a great time and learnt something new (I think). The locals were friendly ans we had a nice chat with the trivia man. We took some lovely photos on the way at Loch Lomond. The weather was again really great. The sun was warm but a cool breeze came off the ocean at the end of the day.

Jun 3, 2010 - We're Not Here Yet

Thursday, 13 May: We arrived in Stranraer, Scotland in plenty of time to take the noon ferry to Belfast, Northern Ireland. There was a light rain when we arrived and we drove through Belfast in search of our next camping site. A friendly auto shop worker greeted us with a “Hi, y’all” when we asked for directions, (he had visited Georgia and Las Vegas). We called Mr. Magennis who said he had room and when we arrived found four other campers on the front lawn. We borrowed an extension cord so we could plug in and had an easy dinner.

Oct 30, 2006 - Halloween in Northern Ireland with the family

Trick or Treat? It was that time again and we were delighted to be sharing it with family in Northern Ireland. Everyone has a few traditions at times like these and well, dunking for apples was a first for Andrea but a normal event at Halloween for Brian and his family. As you can see, they are naturals at it! Then came the fireworks and sparklers - great fun!

Aug 13, 2006 - Galvin, Scotland

Left Glasgow this morning and headed South. We really don't know where we want to go, we just want to be closer to Stranraer which is where we've got to drop the car off on Monday. So we head south and drive through some very small villages (blink and you miss it) and some larger towns (such as Ayr). We have stayed in reasonably big cities since we've been in the UK so we want to stay somewhere smaller with a little bit of character. We end up in a town called Galvin which fits the bill on all counts - it's not too big, it's very pretty...

Dec 3, 2005 - The ferry to Scotland and our train trouble

The next morning we woke up so damn early and I was hurting a little from the night before. We went to the bus station and caught a bus to Belfast where we took a ferry (that was more like a cruise ship) to Stranraer Scotland. When we got to Scotland we were going to rent a car but all the rental places were closed seeing how it was Sunday. We missed the bus and the train out of this town and the next ones weren't for like 4 hours so we piled all of our stuff on one of those pusher carts and went into the city. And yes we took the cart with...
