I've got sunburnt ankles!!

There's a first time for everything I suppose and today was the first time I've come home with my ankles suffering from sunburn. My better half and I drove to the Falkirk Wheel, parked the car there and set off on the bikes along the Forth and Clyde Canal towpath westwards. It was as we Scots say "stoatting weather" or as any other country that gets warmish temperatures would describe the day as "reasonably pleasant"! I covered most susceptible parts of my anatomy against the sun but forgot my ankles which are still stinging at this moment.

We went as far as Kirkintilloch before we turned and when we did get back there was canoe water polo matches being played in the lee of the Falkirk Wheel, another first as I've never seen this game being played before. I suppose with the amount of rain we get in Scotland this could become a game we could excel at!

Next time it's Kirkintilloch westwards into darkest Glesca.......................
