DD1 was going shopping so we had the children out the back door playing and having fun and then we went the park. DD2 came down from Oban with Ziggy to watch Lilly for us while we were away. After her tea we also went to the park. She enjoyed the mirror more than anything else.

The weather here has been dry, hot and sunny for weeks, today it decides to rain. Typical as we were heading off on holiday. Booked into our digs, found out where the happy couple were staying and then did a bit of exploring. Back to the happy couples cottage for a Chinese and a meet up with some of the other guests who also came over today. Loved the bus stop in Whiting Bay.

The wedding day. Dawned dry but cloudy. We went and sussed out where the registry office is as I was playing taxi from the cottage to there. We then went and had a drive round parts of the island before picking up the groom who was getting changed at our bit. The ceremony went well,the sun had come out time they wanted photographs taking. Back to a hotel for a nice meal, after a few drinks and the cutting of the cake we ran the newly weds back to get changed.Then a bit more island exploring for us. Went to pick up a few caches but after the first one I was being eaten alive by the midges so back to the digs it was.

Decided to take a drive round the island, just stopping off anywhere that looked interesting and picking up some geocaches while we were at it. We did the top end of the island which included Lochranza.
Dawned dull and overcast, we nipped to the shop for a few bits and pieces, and by then it was raining. So hubby decided he did not fancy going and getting wet so I put on my waterproofs and went up to Glenashdale waterfall and to see the giants caves. Was a steep walk and have to say had the sun been out the views would have been stunning, but they weren't. But despite the rain I passed a steady stream of people doing the same as me. You really need the volume on with this to get the full effect.
Back to the digs to dry off. We then picked up the happy couple and went for a drink and they had a couple of games of pool.
Home again on an early ferry as DD2 was going home when we got back. Bye bye Arran. Nice to get away but nice to get home. Got a lovely welcome from Lilly.
Hubby was the best man at the wedding. This was his pressie for doing his best man duties.
