On the ground in rainy Scotland

Fresh images of Glasgow Cathedral
Cheryl and I arrived in Glasgow after what seemed like pretty long flights. Sure is fun having my wife along on these trips, though she's pretty tired after not sleeping hardly a wink the whole way here (she says I slept lots...)

We checked out some things at the Glasgow High Kirk, formerly the Cathedral--important foundational first stop for our tour beginning in a couple of days. Ate a good lunch at quaint City Merchant, our first restaurant (though we'll likely do a breakfast for the early bird arrivals on Tuesday morning. Then off to hunt down Bothwell Brig and monument, and to try and find access for our coach and travelers. All the while, I'm praying that I stay alert at the wheel of our rental Vauxhall diesel. Some nut went and put the steering wheel on the wrong side of the vehicle, and then got some kind of trend going and everybody thinks its funny to drive on the left (read 'wrong') side of the road. Imagine it. Had a wonderful evening of good fellowship and good food with Eric and Irene McCallum in Newmilns. Pretty bleary-eyed tired so off to bed.
