Weather has been so naff that we've been keeping close to home. We had high hopes for these few days round the holidays only to be mightily disappointed. Cabin fever was setting in big style. Time to make the most of what's on the doorstep during a brief weather window of opportunity. We were really glad not to have left it to today. You gotta love winter storms, not!!!
Much of the Ardeer Peninsular is off limits due to what used to go on there. For those not in the know Nobel made dynamite here as it was the perfect place to test it in the sand dunes. It has however a fantastic stretch of beach so off we went to see how the waves were doing. It proved to be an exhilarating wander.

We went all the way along to Irvine Bar and even had a wee peak at the now closed teletubby land of The Big Idea.
