Not having been for an "outing" in recent weeks, the weather being not actually inclement, we took to the road. North westwards along the A75 to Newton Stewart where Sainsbury's was open and we got a few essentials and made use of their toilets. (Essential for Oldies). Then on to Wigtown which was obviously well shut up and recovering from Hogmanay - or just enjoying a lie in ?
So, on again a mile or so to Bladnoch and into the Inn there 'cos it had a sign outside saying "Lunch". But, alas, this was an error and there was no lunch. But they were very keen to tell us on what days we would find lunch there, and furthermore rang the Harbour Inn at Garlieston to see what they were up to. "Open, Lunch served till 2.30pm, very busy" was the reply. So, off again to Garlieston where we were hospitably received and found a table. We had an exceedingly good steak pie with peas and a choice of "sides" - I went for the chips, my wife for the spicy wedges. A good apple crumble followed with coffee and we tottered out in the fading afternoon and made our way home through the rain showers.
