Whatever made me think that it was a good idea to travel by motorbike to Scotland in June? Thinking I'd chosen the best month for a warm, dry holiday.
On the 8th June we travelled from Southwick to Langdale Lakes in Lincoln in winds of over 60 miles per hour. Wondering whether we would ever get there in one piece, we eventually did and had a lovely evening with Karen and Tony and set off early the next day for Barnard Castle. During this journey the wind was less fierce but instead we rode through tremendous rainstorms with thunder and lightning. The roads went from dry to three inches of bouncing water, then back to dry again. It was like riding into a dark hole at times with the clouds reaching the earth.
We stopped off after crossing the Humber Bridge at Beverley and had a beer in the White Horse pub, an old fashioned pub with old fashioned prices - know locally as Nellies. This is a must if you like good beer and quaint places.
