Only the second wettest...?

I have an apology to make to my dear friend YAM-Aunty.

When Gail and I arrived on Friday morning at Yam's lovely home in Dunoon, and she told us she lived in the second wettest part of the UK, I have to confess, I doubted her. I even suspected she was pulling one of my four long and fuzzy legs.

Wearing my metaphorical Bertie Boffin hat (in retrospect a real sou'wester would have been more useful), I demanded supporting data.

Three days later, having gathered evidence a-plenty, I am pleased to report that YAM-Aunty was telling the truth, my only outstanding question being, is there really somewhere wetter?

Thank goodness even Gail eventually conceded that indoor (in)activities were the best option.

And so of course we all had a wonderful weekend together.

Aren't friends great?

    OH my, Bertie lad... it really did turn it on, didn't it?! I was, however, impressed at your willingness to take on the wetness under paw and stride out for a bit in it. We did manage to get in between the showers quite well for the little outings me undertook though, and I am happy for that. I look forward to our next time together! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. It looks like you and Gail had a wonderful time, Bertie!

  3. What is great about great friends is that whatever the weather time spent together is sunny.

  4. Oh noes! I would like to visit Yam Auntie, but I don't think I can handle all that wet stuffs!

  5. It looks like you had a great time despite the weather.

  6. Rain rain, go away! But it looks like you all made the best of it. Sometimes, when we have to walk in the pouring rain, my mom calls it a soap-less dogwash! That's one way to look at it!

  7. Looks like you made the most of the rainy days Bertie...Sometimes indoor activities are much more rewarding!

  8. Bertie - Could have been worse - it might have been Girvan.

  9. Definitely wet. We think those Tour de France competitors would have welcomed some of that cool wetness.

  10. We all know that Aunty Yam is a very wise lady!!! But we are also very happy that you, Gail, and Aunty Yam had fun together despite the rain.

  12. Hey Bertie and Gail...I am certainly glad you
    3 had such a fine visit in spite of the rain.
    I'm back from my little jaunt and I must say there was not a drop of rain here or there and our grass is pitiful brown and stiff.
    I was happy to see you, Gail and Aunty all had
    large umbrellas
    Hugs Cecilia

  13. Bertie, that looks like one rainy place to be. There could be a wetter place somewhere. Glad you could enjoy inside activities. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful day.
