21st July 2005

My eldest son, Hugh, or Shug to most people, and I went for a wee run. He had bought a wee Honda 50cc scooter back in January. I had my Jawa 350 at the time.

My diary says – What a great day. Extracts now from my diary.

Hugh and I left about 10.30 – he on his scooter, me on my motorbike. Headed over the Struie to Bonar Bridge. Bought coke, sweets and big cream cakes at the Mace shop. Then headed up the Migdale road round by Loch Buie to Loch Fleet. Then onto Golspie. Stopped at cemetery to Uncle Hugh’s grave.
