Then over to near Bathgate, Edinburgh, for a meal and people sharing memories.
I had written out the route instructions for Pirate...that kept him busy!!
It was a really beautiful day for his send off...a few showers and a rainbow when we finally arrived home.
On the last leg we passed this bing (spoil tip)...it's the end one of about five left in a group on the edge of West Calder.
Not coal...but the remnants of processed oil shale....I was very fortunate to spot the one stopping place by a farm gate, to stop and take this image.
