Well it's the end of our second day and I've realised there is a God after all, England have won a fabulous game of cricket and today my boot opened.  I was trying to follow the cricket on my Iphone and clearly this was getting very exciting.  Time to stop and get Tom to drive while I can concentrate on the game.  Well done England and good luck to Rory in golf tonight.  Again, why did I choose this weekend to come up to Scotland?  We decided to give the Lake District a miss as we were told it would be extremely busy and loads of traffic holdups.  Drove instead to Scotch Cover and over the Pennines that way.  Very pleasant drive and through Gretna (didn't stop this time) and into Galloway National Park.  Again a lovely drive and included a stop at a delightful pub.  Now at Dalgarven House Hotel enjoying a relaxing meal.  Weather looking good for tomorrow.  Nick.
