The Tesco Run and a quick extraction

Wife P and I both had dental appointments earlier in the week. We left home well in time so that we could have a picnic overlooking the Sound of Mull on the way. It was glorious sunshine for the 45 minutes drive to Tobermory. As we drove along the deserted road thinking we were the only people of the island then we rounded a corner. Lo and behold there was a car in the ditch. Apparently, two cars had met on the single track, the ditched one sliding off the road to avoid the oncoming vehicle. So we stopped to offer help, and with the aid of our Land Rover and a strong rope pulled the car out of the ditch. Being the small world of an island, we knew the car driver who was unhurt, slightly shaken and very grateful! We still made our sunny picnic and got to the dentist on time.

The following day was our quarterly Tesco run. That is when Land Rover and I join Wife P for a trip to the mainland rather than she just pop over as a foot passenger with her faithful sholley, other people have pet dogs Wife P has a sholley! Up early and on to the ferry, bar is not open but we socialise with others on the same run! Four hours later, a very full land rover and feeling that we have just paid of part of the national debt we are back heading for ferry via opticians and outdoor shop you could say I was topped and tailed (new specs and boots) and by the skin of teeth managed to get the early ferry complete with its now open bar... so we relaxed, socialised and helped Cal-Mac's profits!
